M.D., a professor of psychiatry at the University of California, San Diego, a geriatric psychiatrist, and president-elect
of APA, said in an interview. "Nonetheless, the results are exciting as they help challenge the traditional notion that the
aging brain, especially in people with mild cognitive impairment, is incapable of positive changes such as greater activation
following cognitive nonpharmacological interventions."
