Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is a syndrome defined as an intermediate stage between cognitively intact and clinically diagnosed dementia; the age-adjusted prevalence of MCI in Taiwan is approximately 18%. Combination of cognitive training and exercise has been found to be effective for improving cognitive functions. However, it is still unclear which combination method could induce better training effects. This study provides and discusses emerging work from Taiwan’s experience.
