Cogmed Working Memory Training
Cogmed Working Memory Training is an evidence-based computer program for helping children, adolescents, and adults sustainably improve attention by training their working memory.
Working memory involves keeping information in your mind for a short time, focusing on a task, and remembering what to do next. We use working memory almost constantly in daily life. Working memory is a pathway to several other mental skills, such as memory, concentration, and reasoning.
The complete Cogmed program includes:
- Initial interview.
- Start-up session.
- Five weeks of computer training with weekly coach calls.
- Wrap-up meeting.
- Six month follow-up interview.
- Cogmed training involves 25 sessions of 30-45 minutes each, done over 5 weeks. You complete it at home, according to your own schedule.
