Key Points
"At both the short- and long-term assessments, the CST-IT group's MMSE scores remained stable, while the control group's scores decreased slightly from pre-test to post-test and follow-up. The CST-IT group also had short-term benefits in other cognitive measures (ADAS-Cog and Narrative Language Test), and mood and behavior measures, which were generally maintained at follow-up. No other differences were observed." Carbonne 2021
