Summary

The purpose of this investigation is to conduct a series of case studies on the impact of a novel functional medicine approach to improving cognitive skills, brain structure, and daily functioning for participants with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI).

Description

Using a multiple baseline design across cases with start point randomization, the proposed study will examine the outcomes from a combination of optimized diet, exercise, nutritional supplements, and cognitive training across domains on standardized measures used to monitor treatment effectiveness for Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A neuropsychological test designed to assess different memory functions. It may incorporate an optional cognitive exam (Brief Cognitive Status Exam) that helps to assess memory related cognitive function.

Cognitive disorders including delirium, dementia, and other cognitive disorders. These may be the result of substance use, trauma, or other causes.

A condition of low alertness or cognitive impairment, usually associated with prolonged mental activities or stress.

A set of cognitive functions that controls complex, goal-directed thought and behavior. Executive function involves multiple domains, such as CONCEPT FORMATION, goal management, cognitive flexibility, INHIBITION control, and WORKING MEMORY. Impaired executive function is seen in a range of disorders, e.g., SCHIZOPHRENIA; and ADHD.

A direct form of psychotherapy based on the interpretation of situations (cognitive structure of experiences) that determine how an individual feels and behaves. It is based on the premise that cognition, the process of acquiring knowledge and forming beliefs, is a primary determinant of mood and behavior. The therapy uses behavioral and verbal techniques to identify and correct negative thinking that is at the root of the aberrant behavior.
