For the study, the researchers examined 35 adults with MCI. The participants were divided in two groups: one group included 16 adults with average age 63, another group was a control group including 19 adults with average age 67.

At the end of the 6-months period, the scientists found that those who performed aerobic exercising had improved more significantly compared to the stretching group.
