This proposal aims to improve the rigor and reproducibility of research on plasticity in human working memory, and related executive functions in adolescent youth. Here, we address significant gaps in the cognitive training literature that pose obstacles to understanding interventions’ reliability and validity by collecting a large-scale open dataset that compares different training approaches on a common set of outcome measures. As a renewal, targeting adolescents with and without ADHD is a natural next step in this research program that started in typically functioning adults. This research is timely as it addresses the limited basic research of cognitive training in adolescents with and without ADHD, whom are understudied, but at the same time, are common targets of commercial products in this space. The long-term goal of this research is to advance knowledge of factors within cognitive training interventions that mediate cognitive training outcomes and uncover individual moderators that individuate training outcomes.
