Development of a Model-based Working Memory Training and Investigation of Its Comparative Efficacy

2019-08-07 16:09:44 | BioPortfolio


This study is to investigate the efficacy of model-based Working Memory (WM) training using an appropriate control condition. The interventions are a model-based, a single-task and a multiple-task training on WM in order to compare the efficacies of these different training approaches for WM. A sham intervention acts as active control group. Each intervention will be presented on a tablet device.

No substantial change in the balance between model-free and model-based control via training on the two-step task.

Human decisions can be habitual or goal-directed, also known as model-free (MF) or model-based (MB) control. Previous work suggests that the balance between the two decision systems is impaired in psy...

Improvements in temporal and postural aspects of gait vary following single- and multi-modal training in individuals with Parkinson's disease.
