TCSPP School Psychology student Jackie Moore blogs from Uganda on her work with Dr. Michael Boivin (Michigan State) and Dr. Bruno Giordani (University of Michigan), where she has volunteered to assist with a research study that evaluates the neuropsychological benefits of cognitive training in Ugandan children with HIV/AIDS, as well as a study that evaluates the neuropsychological benefits of CCRT (Computerized Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapy) for Ugandan school-aged survivors of severe cerebral malaria. The studies use the KABC-II, a clinical instrument used to measure intelligence that is rooted in neuropsychological theory.
