Cogmed can help anyone constrained by working memory capacity. It has been researched in all ages, including preschoolers, students, and adults.
Cogmed specifically trains working memory; the neurocognitive process that allows one to hold information briefly in mind to support goal directed behavior.
Recent research with young children has documented that working memory is more predictive of academic success than IQ. Improvements in working memory can increase efficiency and productivity. It can help hone a competitive edge for students and professionals.
Although working memory is typically weaker in persons with medical conditions such as traumatic brain injury (TBI), attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), cancer, or metabolic disorders, benefits are not restricted to these groups.
