AbstractDespite consistent evidence, little is known about the mechanisms of CST in enhancing cognition in people with dementia. Theoretically, CST may interact with brain and cognitive reserve to produce the generalized cognitive benefits. We explored this putative mechanism in a pilot sample of Hong Kong Chinese using MRI and neuropsychological assessments. Baseline grey and white matter volume and years of work together explained 65% of cognitive gains after CST. The cognitive improvement was dissociated with neuropathological progression. This exploratory research provided a proof of concept of the reserve framework for understanding CST, with implication of early intervention and further research.
