Additional Study Information: The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of a web-based (remote, at home) computerized cognitive training protocol on cognitive performance in cognitively healthy older adults. The training will involve multi-tasking in a simulation of daily life situation. If you are eligible, you will be asked to complete 15 web-based sessions, 3 times a week, over the course of approximately 3 months. Sessions will include cognitive evaluations pre and post-intervention, and 13 training sessions. You will be compensated for each meeting participation. We will reimburse you $120 for the web-based evaluations ($60 each), and $130 for the web-based training sessions. You can be compensated up to $250 if completing the study.
