This study, called LABYR (Labyrinth intervention in high-fidelity long-term memory), will test if new, experiential challenges delivered in a virtual reality video game can improve long-term memory capabilities in older adults and people with mild cognitive impairment. Each person will wear a head-mounted display to play a game running virtual errands while navigating through an unfamiliar, visually complex neighborhood. Participants will be randomly assigned to an intervention or a control, with memory tests conducted before and after the training period. Results will be measured by task and recall testing, functional MRI brain scans, and blood samples.
Minimum Age: 62 Years
