COGNITIVE TRAINING

Cognitive training is a controversial intervention that has mostly equivocal support in the literature. My work has tried to understand how the effectiveness of cognitive training is affected by individual differences in personality and metacognition. I’m particularly interested how these factors play out in real world at-home cognitive training. I have worked with the ABC’s Active Memory program to collect and synthesise large databases of game play data and explore how these are related to demographic and survey data.
