Project Details

Older adults with subjective cognitive impairment (SCD) are at greater risk of cognitive decline and dementia. Changes in subjective/meta cognition are often not detected immediately following standardised cognitive interventions such as cognitive training. As part of this project, the candidate will develop the protocol for a novel intervention targeting meta-cognition in older adults with cognitive concerns, and this will be evaluated in a small trial.
