Key Points
"Using linear mixed models, there were no significant differences between the CCT and the active control program on the primary (p = 0.662) or any of the secondary outcomes (language functioning, p =.628; attention/executive functioning, p =.428; memory, p =.749). Conclusion(s):This study suggests that short-term CCT had no specific benefit for cognitive functioning in non-demented individuals aged 80 and older." West 2019
