The Influence of Multi-domain Cognitive Training on Large-scale Structural and Functional Brain Networks in MCI

The purpose of this study is to integrate advanced computational techniques and multimodal neuroimaging methods to examine the potential effects of long-term, multi-domain, online, computerized cognitive training on large-scale structural and functional brain networks in older adults with mild cognitive impairment (MCI).

Stanford is currently accepting patients for this trial.
