Computer-based Cognitive Training for Patients with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)

Source: Stavros, et al.,. PETRA, June 23-25, 2010.

This study looked at the effectiveness of computer-based training on visual spatial ability, visual attention, visual memory and executive function in patients with MCI. The study findings not only provided evidence for the benefits of cognitive training (specifically utilizing computer exercises), but also that the training produced improvement in activities of daily living which means that the benefits were not just theoretical or statistical; the patients evidenced improvement in their ability to function on a daily basis.
