The purpose of this study is to compare the effect of an experimental intervention called “AKL-T01” (a mobile computerized cognitive training program) with a form of standard of care cognitive rehabilitation (“Enhanced Metacognitive Strategy Training”) on thinking skills and mood after a stroke, to see which is better. Another purpose of this study is to find out if there are changes in brain activity that occur after 6 weeks of mobile cognitive training.
Participants will be randomized to one of the two groups. Participation entails completing mood and cognitive assessments before and after the intervention, two MRI scans, and 6 weekly coaching sessions with a clinician during the intervention period.
This study is being done because with the information gained from this study, there is a potential to treat individuals with stroke who experience cognitive difficulties and depression symptoms. Findings from the study may inform the development of novel treatments that can be delivered in a variety of healthcare settings.
