Researchers will measure if the Modified Story Memory Technique (mSMT) cognitive retraining program can enhance memory and learning ability in cognitively healthy older adults and adults with mild cognitive impairment. Participants will be randomly assigned to either an experimental group, which will receive memory retraining exercises, or a control group, which will receive placebo exercises. Exercises will be administered on a laptop computer twice a week for five weeks. Participants will undergo standardized neuropsychological tests of memory and complete other questionnaires before and after training.
