With a rapidly aging population, there has been great interest in using cognitive training to enhance cognitive function in older adults and age-related diseases. Studies evaluating cognitive enhancing interventions demonstrate mixed findings on efficacy. Effect sizes are heterogeneous across studies and there is inconsistent evidence of transfer to improvements in everyday cognitive tasks. To develop more effective treatments, clinical researchers have increasingly turned to interventions that combine approaches (e.g., computerized cognitive training, exercise, neuromodulation) and that attempt to target circuit-specific mechanisms of cognitive dysfunction.

- PreviewAge-related cognitive decline—normative progressive reduction in cognitive abilities with aging—affects a broad range of fluid cognition domains including memory, executive functioning, and information processing speed.1 It is a heterogeneous phenomenon, likely reflecting multiple etiologies including Alzheimer's and cerebrovascular diseases, as well as individual differences in neurocognitive resilience.2,3 Despite this heterogeneity, age-related cognitive decline is potentially treatable. One putative intervention is cognitive training.
