Mild cognitive impairment is increasingly acknowledged as a risk factor for progression to dementia and, as such, has potential prognostic value. This Special Issue of Brain Sciences will discuss current methods (measurement, criteria) for the identification of mild cognitive impairment, and will examine potential risk factors for mild cognitive impairment. We welcome articles reviewing the identification and classification of mild cognitive impairment, describing new human and animal data, and emerging therapeutic interventions for the management of mild cognitive impairment. We hope we can count on your valuable contribution to make this a successful and impactful Special Issue for the journal.
Assoc. Prof. Andrea Loftus
