This feature issue of Topics in Geriatric Rehabilitation (TGR) focuses on plasticity and cognitive interventions for individuals with mild cognitive impairments (MCI) and Alzheimer disease (AD). AD is one of the most common forms of dementia and older subjects with MCI are at higher risk of being in a prodromal stage of AD. Cognitive impairments can affect an individual’s lifestyle detrimentally leading to a complete state of dependency, especially when memory is severely affected. Investigations related to the prevention and intervention of cognitive decline in older adults with cognitive impairments are urgently needed. Cognitive training has been suggested as a means by which older adults can improve their memory in a lasting manner. In addition, cognitive training can provide information on the extent and mechanisms of brain plasticity in older adults. Therefore, we need to increase our knowledge about the beneficial effects of cognitive rehabilitation for the care of persons affected by memory and cognitive impairments. This special edition is filled with important evidence supporting such investigations and programs for older individuals with cognitive impairments. Conveniently, the information from this special issue can be quickly used in your practice for the care of adults affected with cognitive impairments. We hope our readers will enjoy this special feature issue as much as we did when we were preparing it.
