Older people with diabetes have a higher chance of developing cognitive decline and dementia. Certain types of cognitive training were found to be effective for those at higher risk for dementia, but these treatments have not been tried on diabetic patients. This project will examine the impact of a cognitive training treatment on diabetic patients. It will examine its effectiveness in this group and some of the characteristics that may predict who responds best to the treatment.
