Improvement of Episodic Memory in Persons with Mild Cognitive Impairment and Healthy Older Adults: Evidence from a Cognitive Intervention Program

Source: Sylvie Belleville (et al.); Dement Geriatr Cogn Disord 2006;22:486-499

“The efficacy of cognitive training was assessed in persons with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and persons with normal cognitive aging. The intervention effect (pre- and post-intervention difference) was significant on two of the primary outcome measures (delayed list recall and face-name association). A significant pre-post-effect was also found on measures of subjective memory and well-being. These results suggest that persons with MCI can improve their performance on episodic memory when provided with cognitive training.
