Dr. William Bailey’s June 22nd comments about a study that he and his colleague Jean Turner are conducting on the impacts of Brain Fitness Program training on symptoms of depression, self-efficacy and related psycho-social dimensions in older individuals is worth special mention. We welcome these two University of Arkansas scientists into our community, and look forward to their study results. BFP training specifically targets neurological processes that govern positive good spirits and self-awareness, and we believe that Drs. Bailey and Turner SHOULD measure positive outcomes resulting from this training — but as in all scientific investigations, time will tell!
Dr. Bailey, as you and Dr. Turner gather and analyze your data, please let us ALL know about your experiences and outcomes with the individuals who have used this brain fitness program, when you feel that it is appropriate. We all look forward to hearing from you.
