Title: METHODS OF COGNITIVE FITNESS DETECTION AND TRAINING AND SYSTEMS FOR PRACTICING THE SAME
Abstract:
Provided are methods of assessing and/or training cognitive fitness. Aspects of the instant methods generally relate to identifying and observing neural activity that underlies an event occurring in response to the stimulus or sequence of stimuli of a cognitive task performed by a subject. As such, the instant methods generally include presenting a cognitive task to a subject that includes a stimulus or sequence of stimuli, and monitoring the neural activity of the subject during performance of the cognitive task. Monitoring of such neural activity may be used, at least in part, to determine a neural performance level of a subject which may, in turn, be used in various ways including e.g., as an assessment of cognitive fitness, to tailor a subsequently presented cognitive task to train the cognitive fitness of the subject, etc. Systems and computer readable media for practicing the methods of the present disclosure are also provided.
