CogTale is a comprehensive database and repository which provides easy access to information about the results from trials in the field of cognitive interventions for older adults. CogTale hopes to provide researchers and members of the public with clear, evidence-based information to help answer questions about cognitive interventions.
Cognitive interventions are interventions that focus on our thinking processes (for example, attention and memory), and on the relationship between our thinking processes and our ability to carry out a range of daily tasks and activities. As such cognitive interventions may focus on improving our capacity to learn and recall information, to make decisions, or divide our attention, as well as on our capacity to perform a range of daily acitivities, from using a smart phone, to doing online banking, or planning a trip. The goal is to improve our abilities and performance in areas that are important and meaningful to us. Some forms of cognitive interventions are cognitive training, cognitive rehabilitation and cognitive stimulation.
