Would older adults with mild cognitive impairment adhere to and benefit from a structured lifestyle activity intervention to enhance cognition?: a cluster randomized controlled trial

Background: Epidemiologic evidence suggests that cognitive and physical activities are associated with better cognition in late life. The present study was conducted to examine the possible benefits of four structured lifestyle activity interventions and compare their effectiveness in optimizing cognition for older adults with mild cognitive impairment (MCI).; Method and Findings: This was a 12-month […]

Aerobic exercise increases hippocampal volume in older women with probable mild cognitive impairment: a 6-month randomised controlled trial

Background: Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is a well-recognised risk factor for dementia and represents a vital opportunity for intervening. Exercise is a promising strategy for combating cognitive decline by improving brain structure and function. Specifically, aerobic training (AT) improved spatial memory and hippocampal volume in healthy community-dwelling older adults. In older women with probable MCI, […]

Effects of an interactive video game (Nintendo WiiTM) on older women with mild cognitive impairment

Older adults with a cognitive impairment in residential care settings are often found to be inactive throughout the day. Participation in video games holds promise for these individuals; however, effects of video games played by older adults have not been studied consistently and the few studies conducted have yielded mixed results. The purpose of this […]

Effect of physical activity on cognitive function in older adults at risk for Alzheimer disease: A randomized trial

Context: Many observational studies have shown that physical activity reduces the risk of cognitive decline; however, evidence from randomized trials is lacking. Objective: To determine whether physical activity reduces the rate of cognitive decline among older adults at risk. Design and Setting: Randomized controlled trial of a 24-week physical activity intervention conducted between 2004 and […]

Effects of a controlled trial of aerobic exercise for mild cognitive impairment: A controlled trial

Objectives: To examine the effects of aerobic exercise on cognition and other biomarkers associated with Alzheimer disease pathology for older adults with mild cognitive impairment, and assess the role of sex as a predictor of response. Design: Six-month, randomized, controlled, clinical trial. Setting: Veterans Affairs Puget Sound Health Care System clinical research unit. Participants: Thirty-three […]

A community-based exercise programme to improve functional ability in people with Alzheimer’s disease: a randomized controlled trial

Rationale: Dementia is a common neurodegenerative condition in older age associated with functional decline across multiple domains. This decline impacts not only on the person with dementia, but also on their informal carers and health and aged care systems. With the number of people with dementia rapidly increasing and few effective treatments, there is now […]

A community-based approach to trials of aerobic exercise in aging and Alzheimer’s disease

The benefits of exercise for aging have received considerable attention in both the popular and academic press. The putative benefits of exercise for maximizing cognitive function and supporting brain health have great potential for combating Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Aerobic exercise offers a low-cost, low-risk intervention that is widely available and may have disease modifying effects. […]

From Alzheimer’s disease retrogenesis: a new care strategy for patients with advanced dementia

There is evidence that exercise may reduce the progressive cognitive dysfunction of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). However, no previous investigation has studiethe acute effects of adapted games (AG) on patients with AD. The aim of this study was to examine the acute effects of AG on the agitated behavior (rating scale Agitated Behavior Rating Scale [ABRS]) […]

Effects of two different intensities of aerobic exercise on elderly people with mild cognitive impairment: a randomized pilot study

Objective: To evaluate the effect of different intensities of aerobic exercise on elderly people with mild cognitive impairment.; Design: A randomized trial.; Setting: Residential care homes for elderly people.; Subjects: Forty-eight patients were included in the study.; Interventions: The patients were randomized in three groups. Group A performed aerobic exercise at 40% of heart rate […]

Adherence to exercise programs and determinants of maintenance in older adults with mild cognitive impairment

After a randomized controlled trial showing that improvement on some aspects of cognitive function was related to adherence to an exercise program, determinants of adherence and maintenance were further studied. Older adults with mild cognitive impairment were contacted 6 mo after the end of exercise programs for a telephone interview addressing patterns of adherence and […]
