Amit is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Regenerative Neuroscience Group and coordinates the group’s cognitive training projects. With more than 10 years experience in the field, Amit has a strong interest in cognitive training as a means to evolve and improve mental health across individual lifespan in addition to the opportunity to augment mental capital.
Amit is recognised for a study completed in 2009 demonstrating the effectiveness of cognitive training to improve bookkeeping performance in healthy young adults. Later he expanded his interests to the aging population and has recently completed a trial revealing improvement in cognition amongst older adults at-risk of dementia, as well as the dose-dependency of key cognitive skills to cognitive training, predictors of treatment response and associated neurobiological mechanisms.
