Although some older adults experiencing memory problems have been shown to benefit from cognitive training, evidence regarding who will improve from this type of intervention is lacking. Automated hippocampal volumetry might be used to foresee treatment outcomes. We hypothesized that larger hippocampal volumes are associated with greater memory performance changes following training, and that effects are selectively related to specific hippocampal subfields. 19 memory clinic outpatients with… CONTINUE READING
