FRC: Brain Training Programs and the “Marketplace for Memory” (Multi-Day Event)
End Time 12:30 PM

New Hampshire Institute of Politics - (West Wing)

Elizabeth Rickenbach, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Department of Psychology, will join the Institute to present a talk titled “Brain Training Programs and the 'Marketplace for Memory'” as part of the Faculty Research Colloquium series.

Although a main concern of older adults is fear of memory loss, there is an absence of drug treatments to prevent or reverse cognitive decline. A growing area of research has examined the role of “brain training” to maintain functioning, and results are inconsistent as to their efficacy. Recently, brain training marketing efforts have been targeted by the Federal Trade Commission as misleading, and some suggest that commercially-available software has created a “marketplace of memory” among individuals on a fixed-income budget who fear decline. The current study examined the language used to describe brain training programs in relation to subjective and objective cognition.
