Cogmed is a commercial brain training software program that is based on extensive research and methodologies developed through Sweden’s Karolinska Institute.
Cogmed provides several exercises for Working Memory improvement (both auditory and visual) which is important for learning and cognitive performance. Users are guided through about 30 training sessions with the help of a human personal coach, usually a licensed clinician.
Cogmed was purchased in July 2010 by Pearson Assessments, a unit of Pearson Education. It will be interesting to see how (or if) Pearson modifies Cogmed’s very high price point to appeal to a broader audience.
