The present study aims to evaluate a targeted, progressively challenging, online cognitive training program comprised of 49 distinct exercises targeting a variety of cognitive capacities. The cognitive training program will be compared to a plausibly beneficial active control condition in which participants completed online crossword puzzles.
The investigators hypothesize that the cognitive training will show greater transfer to a range of underlying cognitive abilities than the active control, as measured by a broad battery of neuropsychological assessments and participant-reported outcomes.

- Aggregate Cognitive Performance [ Time Frame: Baseline to 10 weeks ]Aggregate cognitive performance, as measured by Grand Index, on seven neuropsychological assessments (Forward Memory Span, Reverse Memory Span, Grammatical Reasoning, Progressive Matrices, Go/No-Go, Arithmetic Reasoning, Two-Target Search)
- Participant-Reported Outcomes [ Time Frame: Baseline to 10 weeks ]9 questions related to everyday cognition and emotional status.
- Individual Neuropsychological Assessments composite [ Time Frame: Baseline to 10 weeks ]Separate analyses of changes on each of the seven neuropsychological assessments in the battery (Forward Memory Span, Reverse Memory Span, Grammatical Reasoning, Progressive Matrices, Go/No-Go, Arithmetic Reasoning, Two-Target Search).
