Neuropsychological predictors of cognitive deterioration in non-demented individuals.

Conclusion(s): SCDs consistently worrying about their SCCs and those identified with SCD by their caregivers were prone to cognitive function deterioration over time. Changes in language, memory, and frontal lobe function in neurocognitive tests were significantly different between the dementia converters and non dementia converters group. Particularly, SCD and MCI individuals with significantly poor initial executive function and memory abilities should be closely monitored for future cognitive decline.
