PEACEOFMND: Physical Exercise And Cognitive Engagement Outcomes For Mild Neurocognitive Disorder
Over the two weeks of the PEACEOFMND study training, participants will engage daily in individual memory compensation training as well as group supportive therapy.
In addition, participants will be randomly assigned to 1 of 3 program components:
- Computer brain fitness
- Wellness education
These sessions are delivered by a caring, multidisciplinary team including psychologists, education specialists, social workers, cognitive interventionists and exercise specialists.
Participants will continue to engage at home in either yoga, computer brain fitness, or wellness techniques for six months after the initial 2-week program. Participants will visit UF in Gainesville to complete an MRI and cognitive measures before the program and six months later to look at the impact of these interventions on the brain, thinking skills, and well-being.
