About the Study:
Both exercise and cognitive training show great promise for preventing Alzheimer’s disease. Arizona State University researchers seek to discover the most effective approaches to slowing cognitive decline in people with mild cognitive impairment.
The purpose of the study is to test how a 6-month exercise and cognitive training program affects cognition and brain function in people with mild cognitive impairment over 18 months.
What is Involved:
What is Involved?: Participants will undergo supervised cognitive and exercise activities three times a week for the first six months. Unsupervised activity maintenance will be conducted for the remaining 12 months. Memory, thinking, and fitness will be assessed five times over 18-months. Participants will be asked to complete four brain scans over 18-months.
