Cognitive Frailty : Mechanisms, Tools to Measure, Prevention and Controversy

Abstract : Physical frailty is often associated with cognitive impairment, possibly because of common underlying pathophysiologic mechanisms. To stimulate research in this field, the concept cognitive frailty was proposed, emphasizing the important role of brain aging. Cognitive frailty was defined as the presence of cognitive deficits in physically frail older persons without dementia. This subtype of frailty is deemed important, as it may represent a prodromal phase for neurodegenerative diseases and is potentially a suitable target for early intervention. The aim of this report is to refine the framework for the definition and mechanisms of cognitive frailty and relevant screening tools.
