Institution: Queens University
Program: Cogmed RM/ Cogmed QM
Background & Aim: The aim of this research is to evaluate whether Cogmed will improve intelligibility of speech in noise when the materials are associated with a higher processing load (i.e., low-context and high-ambiguity sentences). This will result in overall greater intelligibility, and a smaller difference in intelligibility between high- and low-context sentences, and between low- and high-ambiguity sentences.
Population & Sample Size: 30 typically functioning adults, ages 35 – 65 years
Design: Randomized, Placebo controlled, Test-retest
