Mild Cognitive ImpairmentDISORDER

Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is an intermediate clinical state between normal cognitive aging and dementia, and it precedes and leads to dementia in many cases. The concept of MCI is new, evolving, and somewhat controversial, but there is rough consensus as to its clinical definition and prognosis. Criteria include the presence of subjective complaints of gradual memory loss over at least 6 months reported by the patient or family members, with objective evidence of memory loss demonstrated on clinical memory tests. There has to be general preservation of other cognitive domains (Nasreddine et al. 2005).
