PROCoM Trial Design

3Treatment groups
Experimental Treatment
Active Control
Group I: Model-basedExperimental Treatment1 Intervention
Semantic Feature Analysis training will be provided in the language that was selected by the computational model.
Group II: Model-oppositeActive Control1 Intervention
Semantic Feature Analysis training will be provided in the language opposite to that which was selected by the computational model.
Group III: Sub-Study: Computational Modeling for Bilingual Dementia and Semantic DeclineActive Control1 Intervention
This is a sub-study aimed at building a computational model to simulate bilingual dementia and semantic decline.
