Mild behavioral impairment (MBI) is a neurobehavioral syndrome characterized by later life emergent neuropsychiatric symptoms (NPS) that represent an at-risk state for incident cognitive decline and dementia in people with mild cognitive impairment (MCI). We undertook a study to determine whether MBI was associated with progressive changes in neuropsychological performance in people without significant cognitive impairment.
