Abstract(englisch):
Lifestyles with high levels of cognitive activity have been linked to weaker declines in cognitive abilities with aging. Hence,computer-based cognitive training programs that facilitate intense, daily, cognitive practice may help older adults to maintain and improvetheir cognitive functioning. We present the rationale for and implementation of an internet-based training environment that includes tasksof perceptual speed, episodic memory, and working memory. It was implemented as platform-independent internet- based testing softwareand used in the COGITO study to investigate intraindividual variability and plasticity in 101 younger (age 20-31) and 103 older (age65-80) adults across an average of 100 daily practice sessions. Observations from this study and retrospective self-report evaluations demonstrate the program's feasibility and acceptance among participants. ( DIPF/Orig.)
