In recent years, one of the most studied topics in cognitive science has been cognitive training. Cognitive training refers to the use of structured cognitive exercises to improve specific cognitive skills or abilities, and is typically delivered via computer. The issue of whether cognitive training can improve cognitive function in a lasting and meaningful way has provoked spirited debate amongst researchers in a wide range of disciplines. One key reason for the liveliness of this debate is that cognitive training holds the potential to improve the lives of many people. Consequently, cognitive training has been studied in a wide range of populations. These include healthy individuals (i.e., children, adolescents, adults, and older adults) as well as individuals with a range of disorders that may affect cognitive function, such as neurodevelopmental disorders (e.g., ADHD), acquired neurological disorders (e.g., traumatic brain injury), and mental health disorders (e.g., schizophrenia).
