The concept of mild cognitive impairment: a victim of its ubiquity

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is a term used to describe individuals with cognitive impairment that is not severe enough to affect daily functioning (e.g. Petersen, 2004; Winblad et al., 2004). Although MCI has been used to describe cognitive abnormality due to any number of causes that can be progressive, stable, or reversible, it is most often considered to be a transition phase between normal cognition and dementia.
