The BrainTrain project is one of the Research Centres of Excellence (2015-2018) at the Abo Akademi University, Turku, Finland. The project studies working memory training, its cognitive and neural mechanisms, and the mental architecture of executive functions. A related research topic is executive functioning in bilingualism. The research group is funded by Abo Akademi University Endowment, and Academy of Finland. For a subproject on children, we also obtained financial support from the C.G. Sundell Foundation.
