The main objective of this project is the creation of an online application of brain training that can allow group setting conducted by an experienced trainer. This application will deliver multiple cognitive exercises (both in verbal and visual modalities) that will be largely based upon well-established neuropsychological tests and principles. These exercises will be used to target a range of cognitive domains with the purpose of preventing further decline in older adults with cognitive impairment.

Furthermore, as secondary outcome, we will verify the effectiveness of this application on behavioural, social and emotional symptoms.
