Resumen breve

This is an interventional clinical trial that will be conducted as a pilot project. Investigators hope to conduct the study to obtain at least 10 study completers.

The plan is to screen 20 Parkinson's Disease (PD) patients attending the Academic Health Care Center (AHCC) at NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine clinic and enroll the eligible candidates based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria. Subjects will have 11 study visits over the 11-week period. Subjects cognition will be assessed using a paper-based Test of Memory and Learning (TOMAL) tool. The same tool will be used to asses and compare the cognition at baseline, and end study visits. The weekly 30-mins of cognitive remediation exercises will be done using the Brain. HQ cognitive remediation software.
