MCI and Alzheimer’s

Mild Cognitive Impairment, undiagnosed or misdiagnosed and where it can lead….

David P. Salmon, PhD, of the Department of Neurosciences at the University of California in San Diego, said in an accompanying editorial:

“Semantic memory deficit demonstrated by this study adds confidence to the growing perception that subtle decline in this cognitive domain occurs in patients with amnestic mild cognitive impairment. Because the task places minimal demands on the effortful retrieval process, overt word retrieval, or language production, it also suggests that this deficit reflects an early and gradual loss of integrity of semantic knowledge.”
