Exercise to Improve Cognitive Function in Veterans with MCI
This study will assess the feasibility of a home-based exercise intervention to improve memory in veterans with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), a precursor to Alzheimer's disease.
|Minimum Age||Maximum Age||Gender||Healthy Volunteers|
- Amnestic MCI
- Ability to use a telephone without assistance
- Chest pain
- History of heart attack in past 6 months
- History of ventricular dysrhythmia (a type or irregular heart beat) requiring current therapy
Participants will be randomly assigned to either home-based exercise or health education. Researchers will compare changes in memory over a 6-month time period.
