Cognitive Training for Mild Cognitive Impairment With Insomnia

Start: July 28, 2021
End: August 2023
Enrollment: 50

What Is This Study About?

This study, called TRAIN-MCI, will evaluate whether a computerized cognitive training program can improve cognitive function and sleep quality in older adults with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and insomnia. Participants will be randomly assigned to complete either the computerized cognitive training program or a computerized trivia training group for three 45-minute sessions each week for eight weeks. All participants will complete questionnaires, keep a sleep diary, and wear a wrist device to monitor sleep and heart rate. Researchers will measure changes in cognitive function, sleep quality, stress and anxiety, and other factors of well-being from the start of the study up to 10 weeks.
