The Brain Train program is an ongoing research study being conducted at Massachusetts General Hospital by Dr. Sara Lazar (Department of Psychiatry).
The current focus of the study is to examine the effects of cognitive enhancement programs on changes in memory and attention in individuals with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI).
Its purpose is to compare the mechanisms behind two different brain training programs promoting cognition. One of the programs is brain games-based and the other is mindfulness-based. Both programs are taught by professionals and are designed to promote successful cognition.
