Abstract

Patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) frequently experience significant depressive symptomatology and report cognitive disturbances. To date, no studies have examined the relationship between MCI patients' neuropsychologic functioning, self-reported depressive symptoms, and self-reported cognitive difficulties. In this study, 82 MCI patients completed a comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation that included the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI). A subset of 41 patients and informants also completed a measure of cognitive difficulties. Poorer memory functioning was associated with fewer self-reported depressive symptoms and fewer cognitive complaints.
