Abstract


The cognitive training (CT) as well as physical interventions have the potential to enhance cognition in healthy adults and thus constitute promising approaches to prevent cognitive aging or even to delay the onset of cognitive impairment or dementia. In the milder stages of dementia, cognitive impairments are often the most disabling and distressing features for the individual and their family. The CT aims to improve specific cognitive processes or global cognitive ability, and when used as an intervention approach with clinical populations, there is also an expectation that improvements in cognition will generalise to improvements in functional outcomes.
