ABSTRACTObjective To investigate the long-term efficacy of acoustically controlled auditory training in adults after tarumatic brain injury.Methods A total of six audioogically normal individuals aged between 20 and 37 years were studied. They suffered severe traumatic brain injury with diffuse axional lesion and underwent an acoustically controlled auditory training program approximately one year before. The results obtained in the behavioral and electrophysiological evaluation of auditory processing immediately after acoustically controlled auditory training were compared to reassessment findings, one year later.Results […]

ObjectiveTo evaluate the learning effect of computerized cognitive testing in the elderly.MethodsCross-sectional study with 20 elderly, 10 women and 10 men, with average age of 77.5 (±4.28) years. The volunteers performed two series of computerized cognitive tests in sequence and their results were compared. The applied tests were: Trail Making A and B, Spatial Recognition, Go/No Go, Memory Span, Pattern Recognition Memory and Reverse Span.ResultsBased on the comparison of the results, learning effects were observed only in the Trail Making […]
