Processing speed training in children and adolescents

This study is about how quickly our brains help us to process and use information. This is known as processing speed. Studies have shown that processing speed can be improved in some children by playing games such as card games, computer games and board games. We would like to know if playing these games can help children with a medical condition associated with the brain (white matter integrity) improve processing speed.
