Welcome to the Brain Training Study for Adults (18-40 years old)

Who wouldn’t want to improve their memory, thinking speed, or decision making abilities? There are multiple brain training programs on the market, and we want to know how they benefit the brain.

As a participant in the Brain Training Study, you will be randomly assigned to either one of two training groups, or a no-training control group. If you are assigned to the control group, we can provide you with the training after the study is complete. If you are assigned to a training group, simply play online games for 30 minutes per day, 5 days per week, for 6 weeks. Before and after this 6-week period, you will undergo a cognitive assessment (measurement of your thinking abilities, such as memory, thinking speed, and decision making). Before and after training, we may ask you to undergo a fMRI scan (functional magnetic resonance imaging), which is a safe procedure that allows us to obtain pictures of your brain in action!

As a participant in this study, you will be contributing to neuroscience and knowledge about how brain training programs work. You will have complementary access to a Lumosity brain training program, and may personally benefit from the training. You will receive $20.00 each time you meet with the researchers (to cover parking costs and incidentals such as snacks or lunch). Finally, if you undergo the fMRI scanning before and after training, you will receive a picture of your brain after the study is complete!

If you are interested in participating, please complete the survey below and we will contact you about your eligibility to join the Brain Training Study.
