Research News - Strand 1 for CCTA

CCTA was awarded a 2008 Science and Technology Technological Sector Research Strand 1 project. Dr Grainne Kirwan and Marion Palmer submitted a proposal "Evaluation of Cognitive Skills Improvements using Technological and text-based skills training tools" that was approved for funding this year. This innovative proposal will investigate if brain training exercises are better done by paper or using games consoles. The research studentship will be advertised over the summer with interviews in August. For further information contact the IADT Development Office at +353 1 2144644 or Dr Grainne Kirwan.
