Pharmacological as well as non-pharmacological approaches (cognitive, neurophysiological, nutritional supplementation, electric or magnetic stimulation, psychosocial therapeutic) and multi-domain interventions have been proposed for the prevention and management of cognitive disorders of normal elderly people, persons with Subjective Cognitive Decline (SCI), Mild cognitive Impairment (MCI) and dementia. The outcomes of the most current reviews on cognitive stimulation are listed below.
