Researchers from Wake Forest Baptist Health in Winston-Salem, NC, published a paper in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease that highlights their findings.

While the study was small and only involved 14 participants, the team found an association between mindfulness meditation and signs of improved measures of cognition in adults with mild cognitive impairment (MCI).

No current treatments or therapies exist that help prevent the onset of Alzheimer's disease in people with MCI, which is often the first step on the way to this disease, but research into this topic is ongoing.
