    A diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) might worry an older adult, who could see it as a stepping stone to dementia. But a new study suggests one does not necessarily lead to the other.

    In fact, nearly half of seniors tracked in the study—all of who had been diagnosed with issues in memory and thinking and received an MCI diagnosis—no longer had the condition a few years later.
    The study was conducted to help better understand what factors might be important to a person's risk for dementia.

    Well that's reassuring. I have frequent memory lapses, most of them a matter of not being able to recall a particular word, but this seems to be fairly common in people my age.
