People at WorkPurpose of the Study:

This study is being conducted to learn more about brain training programs, who these programs work for, and how some programs work compared to other programs. As a participant, you will spend 30 minutes/day, 5 days/week, for up to a 10-week training period where you will be either playing computerized games in a location of your choice (e.g., home, office), or be part of a no-contact control group that does not involve any training. You may also be asked to undergo some brain imaging. There is no cost to participate - we provide the games for you.

In return for the free games, and to help us learn about the brain training programs, we ask that you meet with the researchers just before your training period starts, and again just after your training period ends. Meetings will take place at the University of Calgary.

What's in it for me?

There are many benefits to participating in this study!

Train your brain for free - people can spend hundreds of dollars a year on brain training programs, but we'll provide these programs to you for free!

Other studies have shown that these programs improve cognitive skills (for example, your memory, thinking speed, and ability to reason and make decisions), so we expect yours to improve too.
