About

The purpose of this research study is to investigate the effectiveness of a memory enhancement technique in an aging population.

Full description

Memory enhancing techniques have been incorporated into an 8-session treatment protocol, Strategy Based Training to Enhance Memory (STEM), designed to teach participants about each of the techniques, train them on how to apply the techniques in daily life and practice their application to daily life memory demanding situations. The protocol includes teaching participants over age 60 how to restructure a memory demanding situation in order to make optimal use of the techniques.
