Web-based cognitive training is a promising intervention for improving working memory

The HARP team recently published a journal article titled “Web‑Based Cognitive Training to Improve Working Memory in Persons with Co‑Occurring HIV Infection and Cocaine Use Disorder: Outcomes from a Randomized Controlled Trial” in AIDS and Behavior. The aim of this paper was to examine the feasibility and effectiveness of a web-based cognitive training intervention to improve working memory in persons living with HIV and cocaine use disorder. Treatment completion  (74%) and retention rates (97%) were high, and the intervention successfully reduced working memory deficits in the experimental arm relative to the control arm.  Click here to read more!
