A Feasibility Study of One-On-One Cognitive Training with Supplemental Digital Delivery

for Soldiers with Traumatic Brain Injury


Abstract: In this quasi-experimental, pretest-posttest feasibility study, 11 soldiers between 3 and 36

months post traumatic brain injury completed half of ThinkRx through one-on-one cognitive training

at an occupational therapy clinic and half through computer-based cognitive training sessions at

home. Participants achieved statistically significant gains in short term memory, associative memory,

executive processing, auditory processing, and fluid reasoning with very large effect sizes; and selfreported

improvements in attention, memory, and organization. Further, they achieved significant

clinical changes, restoring function to normal levels in nearly all cognitive skills. Examples of clinically

significant changes in memory are shown in the box plots.
