Abstract

Testing and evaluating a novel community-based delivery method for cognitive training software – setting up 'brain gyms' in the community. These have the potential to not only improve the cognitive health of older adults (and in fact, adults of all ages), but also to provide access to specialized software to people who otherwise would not have the opportunity.
