 Abstract: Aim: To evaluate the combined effect of compensation therapy and functional training on working memory (WM) in patients with acquired injury and chronic cognitive deficits by investigating the dose-response relationship and specificity of transfer effects. Research design: Double-blind randomized controlled trial. Methods: All patients underwent 4 weeks of compensation therapy in a day-care setting. In addition, they received either 20 sessions of computer-based WM training (n = 11) or attention training (n = 9). Transfer effects on cognition and their functional relevance in daily life were assessed before treatment, after 2 weeks (10 additional training sessions), and after 4 weeks (20 additional training sessions) of therapy. Results: The combined treatment led to significant improvements in WM performance, verbal memory, and self-reported changes in daily life. The amount of training was identified to modulate efficacy: Significant improvements showed only in the later training phase. We observed no differences between the two training schemes (WM vs. attentional training). Conclusions: Even in the chronic phase after brain lesion WM performance can be enhanced by the combination of compensation therapy and computerized cognitive training when applied intensely; both a more general attention and a specific WM training regimen are effective.
