The focus of the Brain Performance Lab is the use of brain training (internet-based games focusing on specific cognitive functions) across a variety of psychiatric disorders in which executive dysfunction exists including depression (across the lifespan), ADHD, and cognitive impairment in late-life. In the Fall of 2016, we will begin a 5-year NIA-funded project using Lumosity’s brain training platform for older adults with mild cognitive impairment. We are also conducting a study using Peak’s mobile brain training app in the treatment of mild depression among college students and are exploring the game of chess as a potential treatment for executive deficits in children with ADHD symptoms.
