Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to this Special Issue dedicated to exploring the dynamic field of cognitive training.

This issue delves into the latest advancements from the digital applications to the adjuvant use of neurophysiological brain stimulation techniques, offering a comprehensive overview of different emerging and established interventions. 

As cognitive training technologies evolve, their applications stretch from enhancing everyday mental capabilities to therapeutic strategies for neurological disorders. 

The contributions in this issue span original research articles, reviews, and case studies that highlight innovative approaches, practical outcomes, and theoretical implications in cognitive training. 

This collection not only enriches our understanding but also sets the stage for future developments in cognitive enhancement strategies from neuroenhancement in healthy subjects to the treatment of neurological diseases.

Prof. Dr. Lars Wojtecki
Guest Editor
