This project will compare three different exercise interventions over 12 months in individuals with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI). There has been minimal advances for the prevention any management of dementia in recent years. Individuals with MCI are at a higher risk of developing dementia and therefore need tailored interventions to decrease their risk.  Exercise has been shown to be a promising intervention for individuals at risk of cognitive decline and therefore the purpose of this study is to examine the effects of three different types of exercise on cognition in individuals with MCI over a 1-year period.

PhD candidate Emily, is conducting a sub-study within this trial investigating the effects that these three modes of exercise have on cerebrovascular regulation as measured by 2D Ultrasound and Transcranial Doppler. 

This project is funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council.

This project is a multicentre trial with the other locations at The University of Sydney and The University of British Columbia.
