Reproducible identification of subtypes of mild cognitive impairment

Takeaway

  • A subset of people with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) with subtle cognitive impairment (SCI) can be identified through analysis of results from a variety of neurological tests; these patients are at reduced risk of disease progression and their successful identification may enable earlier treatment.

Why this matters

    Increasing efforts are being made to identify early cognitive changes that precede AD and characterization of subtypes of MCI through rigorous neurological testing may enable earlier intervention.
