Psychiatric News (1/5) reports, “Older individuals with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) who have depressive, hyperactive, and/or psychotic symptoms are at higher risk of developing dementia than are older people with MCI with mild or no neuropsychiatric symptoms,” researchers concluded after analyzing “data on neuropsychiatric symptoms…among 7,971 patients (average age: 73 years) diagnosed with MCI who were enrolled in the National Institutes of Health’s Alzheimer’s Disease Centers between June 2005 and December 2019.” The findings were published online Jan. 2 ahead of print in the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry.
