Cogmed Working Memory Training improves attention

Cogmed Working Memory Training is a solution for individuals who are held back by their working memory capacity. That means several large groups: children and adults with attention deficits or learning disorders, victims of brain injury or stroke, and adults experiencing information overload or the natural effects of aging.

Working memory is the ability to keep information in your mind for a short time, focus on a task, and remember what to do next. By training your working memory, you will be better able to stay focused, ignore distractions, plan next steps, remember instructions, and start and finish tasks.

Weak working memory is experienced as attention problems and causes poor academic and professional performance.
