Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is generally accepted to represent deficits in memory and/or other cognitive domains that are greater than can be accounted for by normal aging but not significant enough to represent dementia. In his book Mild Cognitive Impairment, Ronald Petersen, MD, presents a good overview of the concepts and current issues relevant to MCI. Petersen and many of his contributors are primary researchers in the field of MCI and, thus, a valuable resource for those involved in clinical diagnosis or research in the areas of normal aging, MCI, and Alzheimer disease (AD).
