It can be challenging to distinguish between people with normal age-associated memory loss and those with amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI).The study asked questions falling into five categories: memory, orientation, functional ability, visuospatial ability, and language. Six of these questions are known to be predictive of AD.

Notice that 4 Out of those 5 are associated to movement or perception of oneself in space. Check out this study really interesting in the question selection!

May I remind you that you are likely to improve in all those sections if you follow complex strength training exercises like this one:
