Scand J Rehabil Med. 1985;17(2):101-5.


The aim of this study was to assess the cognitive skills and visuo-motor performances of patients with type-2 diabetes. An ADL questionnaire, neurophysiological EEG recordings and a comprehensive battery of neuropsychological tests were administered to 33 type-2 diabetics and to 33 matched controls. Neither neuropsychological nor neurophysiological EEG findings differentiated type-2 diabetics as a group from their controls.
