“We were able to show that those people who turned to a memory clinic because of SCD had measurable, albeit only mild cognitive deficits,” explained Dr Steffen Wolfsgruber, lead author of the current publication.
The findings are based on extensive testing, refined data analysis and the relatively large number of people examined.
“This significantly improved measurement sensitivity. Thus, we found that study participants considered to be healthy generally scored better in mental performance than memory clinic patients with SCD,” said Dr Steffen Wolfsgruber.
Dr Wolfsgruber added: “These differences are hardly detectable with standard methods of analysis and in small groups of people. Especially not on an individual level. In any case, you need a large data set.”
