LORENZO OTERO, Jorge  y  FONTAN SCHEITLER, Luis. Las fronteras entre el envejecimiento cognitivo normal y la enfermedad de Alzheimer.: El concepto de deterioro cognitivo leve. Rev. Méd. Urug. [online]. 2003, vol.19, n.1, pp.4-13. ISSN 1688-0390.

Summary We reviewed the concept of cognitive aging, Alzheimer's disease risk factors, and normal aging factors. We concluded that normal elder people don't show a significant cognitive damage. We also reviewed the concept of mild cognitive damage, its clinical and damaging bases, the importance of neuropsychological diagnosis, imaging and paraclinical markers, in addition to discussing current imaging procedures. Mild cognitive damage is a relevant clinical condition since many patients present it as an early stage of Alzheimer's disease. The existence of other neuropsychological profiles was suggested. We described the current management of mild cognitive damage and oncoming alternatives. General conclusions of clinical interest have been selected
