Abstrakt

In a randomized controlled trial, we investigated the pattern of near
transfer effects of working memory (WM) training with an adaptive
auditory-visuospatial dual n-back training task in healthy young adults.
The results revealed significant task-specific transfer to an untrained
single n-back task, and more general near transfer to a WM updating
composite score plus a nearly significant effect on a composite score
measuring interference control in WM. No transfer effects were seen on
Active or Passive WM composites. The results are discussed in the light
of cognitive versus strategy-related overlap between training and
transfer tasks.
