The purpose of this research study is to investigate the effectiveness of a memory retraining program and a processing speed program in a spinal cord injured (SCI) population. Processing speed is the time it takes a person to process new information.
The study will involve 14 sessions spread over 5 months. Participants will complete a screening evaluation via an online platform, such as Zoom to determine eligibility (approximately 1 hour), 3 testing sessions lasting 3-4 hours each, and 10 training sessions lasting about 45 minutes each. If participants have difficulties in both memory and processing speed, participation may be extended an additional 6 weeks adding 10 training sessions and an additional testing sessions.
All sessions can be completed via an online platform such as Zoom, unless the participant prefers to meet in person.
