Introduction: The aim of this study was to compare the mean scores of immediate visual memory, delayed visual memory, immediate auditory memory, delayed auditory memory, working memory, retrospective and prospective memory and autobiographical memory in amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment and healthy controls.
Method: In this study, 40 patients with amnesic Mild Cognitive Impairment were selected and compared with 40 healthy controls. Wechsler Memory Scale, Autobiographical Memory Test and Retrospective-Prospective Memory test were administered and data was analyzed by ANOVA and Mann-withney U tests.
Results: The results showed that there is a significant difference between the mean scores of immediate visual memory, delayed visual memory, immediate auditory memory, delayed auditory memory, working memory, retrospective and prospective memory between patients and healthy controls (P<0.05). But there was no significant difference in the scores of autobiographical memory between the two groups (P<0.05).
Conclusion: The difference in brain structure and function between patients and healthy controls, considering mild cognitive impairment in dementia spectrum, can explain the difference in different memory dimensions.
