Methods: The implemented program tackled several dimensions, including daily orientation sessions, cognitive stimulation sessions twice a week, followed by movement […]

Visuospatial memory and neuroimaging correlates in mild cognitive impairment

Spatial abilities decline in normal aging and decrease faster and earlier in Alzheimer’s disease (AD), but these deficits are under investigated. The main goals of this study were to assess visuospatial memory abilities in mild cognitive impairment (MCI), in order to verify whether these tasks might be valid as the standard cognitive test to differentiate […]

Reducing false positive diagnoses in mild cognitive impairment: The importance of comprehensive neuropsychological assessment

Background and purpose Longitudinal studies of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) report that a sizeable proportion of MCI cases revert to normal levels of functioning over time. The rate of recovery from MCI indicates that existing MCI diagnostic criteria result in an unacceptably high rate of false positive diagnoses and lack adequate sensitivity and specificity. Methods […]

Predicting decline in mild cognitive impairment: A prospective cognitive study

Method: This study used a prospective longitudinal design. One hundred twenty-two older adults with single-domain or multiple-domain amnestic MCI were recruited from memory clinics. […]
