Abstract: The objective of the thesis was to investigate the cognitive profiles of different types of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and follow their course over time. Would it be possible to differentiate between “benign” and “malign” forms of MCI, and identify different dementia disorders in their prodromal stages by means of cognitive profiles? In study I consecutive MCI subjects (N=112) were assessed with a neuropsyhological test battery of 21 tests. When compared to healthy controls (N=35) MCI subje... more
