Cognitive Remediation Program
The Cognitive Remediation Program at NYU Langone’s Pearl I. Barlow Center for Memory Evaluation and Treatment teaches people about the various cognitive memory changes that normally occur with age. We contrast that with the changes that are typical of various conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease. We also teach strategies to strengthen memory and enhance your everyday level of cognitive functioning.
Topics covered include:
- normal age-related changes in memory
- how depression, stress, diet, and physical exercise affect memory
- strategies for improving memory functioning
- how to strengthen cognition
The class is led by a board-certified clinical neuropsychologist. Our program is offered over the course of five 90-minute sessions. The cost is $1,000 and includes all program materials, workbooks, and computer software necessary to continue your training at home after the class ends. There are weekly homework assignments, and class size is limited to five to seven participants.
By the end of the program, participants report significant gains in their knowledge of age-related cognitive changes and changes associated with dementia and memory loss.
