The purpose of this study is to see if an intense two-week long cognitive training program helps the thinking ability of adults with very mild Alzheimer Disease. We anticipate that scores on clinical cognitive tests will be better after the training.

Study summary:

Twenty of the 30 subjects will be recruited to participate in functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Scanning will be done while subjects perform a verbal learning task. Ten subjects will be scanned before and after the two week training. Another ten will be scanned twice at a two week interval before beginning the cognitive training.


Inclusion Criteria: - Diagnosis of very mild Alzheimer's Disease (CDC of 0.5) and mild Alzheimer's Disease (CDC of 1.0) Exclusion Criteria: - Neurologic disorder other than Alzheimer's disease
