Knowledge of how Alzheimer’s progresses over
time is often described as having three phases: a presymptomatic, or preclinical, phase many years prior to diagnosis; a symptomatic mid-course, usually referred to as mild cognitive impairment (MCI), characterized by mild problems in the ability to think, learn, and remember, with some but not all people with MCI progressing to dementia; and, at its most advanced, Alzheimer’s dementia, reflected by a loss of the ability to function independently and a substantial impairment in cognitive function.
