Kessler Foundation's National Institutes of Health-funded work in aging and memory examines methods for improving new learning and memory in individuals with mild cognitive impairment (MCI). This method has been shown to be effective in other neurological populations, namely multiple sclerosis and traumatic brain injury. Strong pilot data supports its application to healthy aging and early dementia.
