What is mild cognitive impairment?

Mild cognitive impairment, or MCI, is a condition in which people have more memory problems than normal for their age, but their symptoms are not as severe as in Alzheimer’s disease. They are able to carry out their normal daily activities. They usually do not have Alzheimer’s symptoms, like confusion, attention problems, and difficulty with language. People with MCI are more likely to go on to develop Alzheimer’s disease than are people without MCI.
