Assignment 1: LASA 2: Memory Training in Older Adults

Paper , Order, or Assignment Requirements

One of the cognitive changes older adults worry about and fear most is memory loss. Some older adults may assume that any memory loss means that they are developing dementia. However, some memory loss that occurs with aging is normal and can be managed by understanding why it occurs and using memory-training exercises to reduce its impact.
Use your module readings and the Argosy University online library resources to research memory training for older adults. Select an authoritative research article for use in this assignment.
Based on the article and one of the cognitive theories covered in your readings, design your own study that tests a program for memory training in older adults. In your paper include the following:

o An overview of the changes in memory abilities that occur with aging. This overview should include a description of the difference between normal memory loss that occurs with aging and memory loss that is due to dementia. Review at least one cognitive theory discussed in the readings.


o A summary of the research article you chose. The article should provide evidence in support of memory training programs for the elderly such as the one you are proposing.


o The hypothesis of your study.


o Described the methodology of the proposed study including the age range of the participants, and participant variables such as: 1) age, 2) gender, 3) level of education, 3) SES, 4) level of cognitive functioning, etc. Ethical considerations should also be discussed.
