VANCOUVER, British Columbia – Adaptive, computer-based cognitive remediation may improve cognitive function in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), data indicate.
The study, which compared the cognitive benefits of an adaptive program vs typical computer-based games, was presented at the 2016 annual meeting of the American Academy of Neurology (ANN), in Vancouver.
Compared to ordinary computer games, adaptive cognitive training programs allow for remediation that adjusts in real time to the user's level of performance, promoting constant effort and engagement. In order to assess and compare the benefits of adaptive vs ordinary training programs, Leigh Charvet, PhD, of NYU Langone Medical Center, and colleagues conducted a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in patients with MS.
