Press Release (ePRNews.com) - COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Apr 11, 2018 - The results of a study published in “Journal of Neuroimaging” highlight the benefits of LearningRx’s ThinkRx one-on-one cognitive training program in improving cognitive skills in soldiers with moderate to severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) and acquired brain injury (ABI).
In a chart review of a pilot study conducted with soldiers in a warrior transition unit (WTU) at a large Army base in the United States, researchers found statistically significant improvements in IQ score, long-term memory, processing speed, auditory processing and fluid reasoning with very large effect sizes. Gains were also noted in working memory and visual processing. Also noteworthy were the self-reported transfer of training effects to improvements in confidence, perseverance, attention and memory.
The study, which was presented at the 41st Annual Meeting of the American Society of Neuroimaging, was led by Christina Ledbetter, Ph.D., Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center and Amy Lawson Moore, PhD, Gibson Institute of Cognitive Research.
Overall, eight of the 10 participants included in the analysis could be classified as ‘recovered’ and an additional two participants could be classified as ‘improved’ given their Reliable Change Index scores.
“Overall, eight of the 10 participants included in the analysis could be classified as ‘recovered’ and an additional two participants could be classified as ‘improved’ given their Reliable Change Index scores,” explains Dr. Moore. “These results suggest that the ThinkRx cognitive training program may be a viable intervention for targeting the cognitive skill deficits associated with brain injury.” A summary of the study, “Neuroimaging Outomes of a Cognitive Rehabilitation Training Program,” can be found here: https://www.gibsonresearchinstitute.org/research-areas/research-summaries.
