The UCR Psychology Department is looking for participants for a new research project with the goal of improving cognitive function in adults 60 years old and above. Participants can earn up to $250 upon completion of the study for their time. Program is designed by researchers at the University of California Riverside (UCR), led by Dr. Aaron Seitz, an expert in perceptual learning. The program is based on previously successful research in this field with the goal to improve cognitive function. The training program is set up like a video game to be played on the iPad. We are looking for volunteers who would like to test the effectiveness of our program on the improvement of cognitive function including sustained attention, memory, multi-tasking, intelligence, and inhibition.

  • Adults aged 60+ who have NOT been diagnosed with cognitive deficits (such as Alzheimer’s Disease or dementia).
  • ·  Participants need to complete the training sessions (up to 20) that take 10-30 min each and two 1. 5 hour long assessments (one before and one after training).

·  Transportation to UCR required, but parking will be provided. For more information, please contact Dr. Deveau at memorylabstudy@gmail.com or call (951) 888-1192 for more information.
