Treatment participants showed greater improvements than controls on speed of processing, short-term memory, working memory, problem solving, and fluid reasoning assessments.Participants in the treatment group also showed greater improvements on self-reported measures of cognitive functioning, particularly on those items related to concentration compared to the control group (Cohen’s = 0.249; 95% confidence interval = [0.191, 0.306]).Our results suggest at least two processes at work in individual learning curves: locally, a gradual, smooth improvement, with diminishing gains within a specific strategy, which is modeled well as a PL; and globally, a discrete sequence of strategy shifts, in which each strategy is better in the long term than the ones preceding it. A major goal of aging research is to investigate methods that help to maintain brain health, cognition, independent living and wellbeing in older adults.

Here we present normative data from a sample of 130,140 healthy volunteers for an NCPT battery consisting of 8 subtests.
Reliability and validity of the Neuro Cognitive Performance Test, a web-based neuropsychological assessment. The NCPT platform is modular and includes 18 subtests that can be arranged into customized batteries.
RESULTS: There were significant effects of age on baseline LMM scores (β = −.31, standard error or SE = .02, P The notion that human learning follows a smooth power law (PL) of diminishing gains is well-established in psychology.
This characteristic is observed when multiple curves are averaged, potentially masking more complex dynamics underpinning the curves of individual learners.
(2015) Evidence for age-associated cognitive decline from internet game scores. Change in LMM scores may be associated with individual differences in age-related changes in working memory.
METHODS: Effects of age and time on LMM learning and forgetting rates were estimated using data from 1890 game sessions for users aged 40 to 79 years.
Below you'll find abstracts from published papers from our team and HCP collaborators, including observational studies regarding trends in Lumosity data and exploratory research involving subjects suffering from a variety of medical conditions. Lumosity is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. Test-retest reliability was evaluated in a subset of participants who took the battery again an average of 78.8 days later. Remotely-delivered cognitive remediation in multiple sclerosis (MS): protocol and results from a pilot study. BACKGROUND: Cognitive impairment represents a critical unmet treatment need in multiple sclerosis (MS). Enhancing cognitive abilities with comprehensive training: A large, online, randomized, active-controlled trial. However, other studies have not shown such gains, and questions remain regarding the efficacy of specific cognitive training interventions.
You should always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. The eight NCPT subtests group into 4 putative cognitive domains, have adequate to good test-retest reliability, and are sensitive to expected age- and education-related cognitive effects. Multiple Sclerosis Journal - Experimental, Translational and Clinical. Cognitive remediation is promising but traditionally requires multiple clinic visits to access treatment. Cognitive training research often involves programs made up of just one or a few exercises, targeting limited and specific cognitive endpoints.

Can computerized brain training games be used to identify early cognitive impairment in cirrhosis? OBJECTIVES: We evaluated whether commercially available, computerized “brain-training” games can be used to identify subtle cognitive impairments in patients with cirrhosis.
