Cogmed Working Memory Training

What is Cogmed?

Cogmed Working Memory Training is an evidence-based computerized training program designed by leading neuroscientists to improve attention by effectively increasing working memory capacity in individuals.

What is working memory and why is it important?

Working memory is the cognitive function responsible for a wide range of tasks related to attention and focus. It is the ability to keep information in your mind for several seconds, manipulate it, and use it in your thinking. It is central to concentration, problem solving and impulse control. A strong working memory is essential for learning.

We use our working memory constantly in daily life helping us to perform efficiently and effectively in academic, professional, and social settings.

What kind of research is behind Cogmed?

Cogmed is backed by peer-reviewed, controlled research done at leading universities around the world and is proven to lead to significant, real life improvements in 80% of users.

Who can do it?

The training is suitable for anyone with working memory constraints, who wishes to improve their ability to concentrate. There are three versions available:

• Cogmed JM for preschoolers
• Cogmed RM for school children
• Cogmed QM for adults

How does it work?

The training consists of active and adaptive computerized exercises, which are done over a period of 5 weeks. It can be done at home, in school or at work. Each user is monitored and supported by their Cogmed Coach who provides feedback and encouragement.

An initial interview, and in some cases a screening, are required to establish whether Cogmed training is suitable and will benefit the individual.
