Summary

This study was based on baseline data derived from a large prospective study called the Suwon Project (SP), a cohort comprising nonrandom convenience samples of elderly people, all of whom are ethnic Koreans aged over 60 years.

Description

The study protocol included cognitive screening through the Korean version of the Mini-Mental State Examination (K-MMSE), which has been validated for the Korean-speaking population ({YW, 1997 #88}Kang YW et al., 1997), recording of the subject's medical history. A Korean study in the community defined the cut-off point of K-MMSE score during the screening of dementia as 17/18 points; the sensitivity and specificity of the findings were 91% and 86%, respectively ({YW, 1997 #88}Kim et al., 2003). Based on these results, we defined cognitive impairment (CI) as the group that had a K-MMSE score lower than 17, and not cognitive impairment (NCI) was defined as the group that had a K-MMSE score higher than 18.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The thoracolumbar division of the autonomic nervous system. Sympathetic preganglionic fibers originate in neurons of the intermediolateral column of the spinal cord and project to the paravertebral and prevertebral ganglia, which in turn project to target organs. The sympathetic nervous system mediates the body's response to stressful situations, i.e., the fight or flight reactions. It often acts reciprocally to the parasympathetic system.

Measures of spatial cognition and memory.

Intellectual or mental process whereby an organism becomes aware of or obtains knowledge.

Disturbances in the mental process related to thinking, reasoning, and judgment.

Nerve fibers which project from the central nervous system to autonomic ganglia. In the sympathetic division most preganglionic fibers originate with neurons in the intermediolateral column of the spinal cord, exit via ventral roots from upper thoracic through lower lumbar segments, and project to the paravertebral ganglia; there they either terminate in synapses or continue through the splanchnic nerves to the prevertebral ganglia. In the parasympathetic division the fibers originate in neurons of the brain stem and sacral spinal cord. In both divisions the principal transmitter is acetylcholine but peptide cotransmitters may also be released.
