This is a double-blind placebo controlled trial that utilizes a novel computerized working memory training program to improve the cognitive function in HIV patients. We further aim to evaluate the brain changes associated with the training effects using functional MRI techniques. We will also determine whether individuals with a particular genotype will show better training effects. Lastly, we will explore whether neuroinflammation may impact the training effects.
