SKILL Study

The Staying Keen In Later Life (SKILL) study began in 2000 and investigated the impact of processing speed training against computer exercises (control condition) in persons who demonstrated poor processing speed at baseline (N=213). In addition, baseline measures were collected on a subsample of persons without poor processing speed. In 2004, a follow-up study occurred that collected three-year data on all available SKILL participants over the phone.
