Welcome to CogTale!
Interested in cognitive interventions, but confused about what you hear in the media? Want to take a closer look at the evidence, but not sure what information to trust?
What is CogTale?
CogTale is a comprehensive database of design (methodological) features and summary results from all relevant trials of cognitive interventions in the field of cognitive ageing.
The scientists behind CogTale are passionate about research on cognitive interventions in older age, and about assisting consumers in making informed treatment decisions, by providing up-to-date, evidence-based information on cognitive intervention treatments.
CogTale is currently in a 'pilot' phase (Beta Release), which means that data and articles are being continuously added to the platform, and the website is subject to regular change.
Applications to do an internship with the Cognitive Interventions Technologies and Evaluations (CITE) research group are now open. If you are a 3rd year undergraduate student looking for some research experience, you can get involved in CogTale and other projects. For more information, visit CITE website.
