Efficacy of cognitive training programs based on new software technologies in patients with Alzheimer-type dementia

The study aims to assess the efficacy of the Big Brain Academy (BBA), a computerized cognitive training program (CT) based on video games, compared to the Integrated Psychostimulation Program (IPP), a classical CT tool for patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD). A total of 45 patients with AD at the mild stage were randomly assigned to […]

Preserving cognition through an integrated cognitive stimulation and training program

Background: Cognitive decline leads to disability and increased health care expenditures.; Methods: Effectiveness of an intervention to stimulate multiple cognitive domains was determined using a format combining traditional and computer-based activities (Integrated Cognitive Stimulation and Training Program), 45 minutes a day, 2 days a week, for 6 weeks. Nonimpaired, mildly, and moderately-impaired participants > age […]

A randomized controlled trial of cognitive training using a visual speed of processing intervention in middle aged and older adults

Background: Age-related cognitive decline is common and may lead to substantial difficulties and disabilities in everyday life. We hypothesized that 10 hours of visual speed of processing training would prevent age-related declines and potentially improve cognitive processing speed.; Methods: Within two age bands (50-64 and ≥ 65) 681 patients were randomized to (a) three computerized […]

Video prompting versus other instruction strategies for persons with Alzheimer’s disease

Background/aim: Two studies assessed the effectiveness of video prompting as a strategy to support persons with mild and moderate Alzheimer’s disease in performing daily activities.; Methods: In study I, video prompting was compared to an existing strategy relying on verbal instructions. In study II, video prompting was compared to another existing strategy relying on static […]

Predicting AD conversion: comparison between prodromal AD guidelines and computer assisted PredictAD tool

Purpose: To compare the accuracies of predicting AD conversion by using a decision support system (PredictAD tool) and current research criteria of prodromal AD as identified by combinations of episodic memory impairment of hippocampal type and visual assessment of medial temporal lobe atrophy (MTA) on MRI and CSF biomarkers.; Methods: Altogether 391 MCI cases (158 […]
