Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

In this review of the Cogmed training program, we discuss its theoretical foundations, materials, the intervention program, use of coaches, customer support, and research support.

METHOD:

This review was conducted by means of first-hand exploration of the Cogmed training program in conjunction with a critical synthesis of existing empirical literature.

RESULTS:

We conclude that Cogmed has the potential to help individuals improve working memory capabilities and focused attention.

CONCLUSION:

More research is needed to demonstrate if these changes in working memory and focused attention are enduring and generalizable.

KEYWORDS:
