This is the first book on mild cognitive impairment (MCI), the transitional period between normal aging and early onset of Alzheimer's disease.
Persons with MCI have an increased risk of developing AD. This book addresses the spectrum of issues involved in MCI, and includes chapters on clinical studies, neuropsychology, neuroimaging, neuropathology, biological markers, diagnostic approaches, and treatment. It is intended for individuals interested in aging and cognition, among them neurologists, psychiatrists, geriatricians, clinical psychologists, neuropsychologists, and their students and trainees.
