Even without the progression of neurological disorders that include Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, cognitive decline in non-demented older people has consequences that can influence quality of life, and decision making. Cognitive training may be able to compensate or prolong cognitive decline. What is currently lacking in research is whether cognitive training on specific tasks can improve daily living skills, or transfer to untrained cognitive abilities. I am interested in investigating forms of cognitive training that can transfer to improvements in real world outcomes or activities of daily living.
