There is substantial clinical need to recognize the individuals who need care for cognitive issues that go beyond normal aging. These problems are noticeable, but clinicians have lacked a reliable diagnosis by which to assess symptoms the most proper treatment or services. Recent studies suggest that identifying mild neurocognitive disorders in the early stages itself may allow interventions to be more effective. Early intervention efforts may enable the use of treatments that are ineffective at more severe levels of impairment and may prevent or slow progression. Researchers will analyze how well the new diagnostic criteria address the depressive symptoms, as well as potential therapies like educational or brain stimulation.
