Involvement in social and leisure activities has been associated with a decreased risk of dementia in the elderly with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI). MCI is a crucial phase to prevent the worsening of cognitive decline in elderly at risk to develop dementia. These last years, the use of computerized training programs to enhance cognitive functioning showed positive and promising results. However, the effects on psychosocial factors still poorly documented in cognitive interventions in MCI. It seems essential to promote these factors involving social ties, group dynamic, the motivation, as factors that can contribute to enhance social life and cognitive functioning.
This feasibility study evaluated a computer-based cognitive stimulation in elderly with MCI and explore the effects on cognitive and psychosocial components.

Experimental: Computerized cognitive stimulation
Computerized Cognitive Stimulation was administered to intervention group (IG).
Behavioral: Computerized Cognitive Stimulation
The intervention group performed 12-week, 90-minutes per week of cognitive stimulation in group using a tablet with a commercial software with specific exercises to train the cognitive functioning and promote the relation ties in group-session.The program's difficulty level was adjusted to the MMSE score, and was gradually increased.
Active Comparator: Multimedia-based internet activities
Multimedia-based internet activities was administered to active control group (ACG).
Behavioral: Multimedia-based internet
The active control group had access to different Multimedia contents (travel, photos, music, TV program, cooking recipes) using a tablet, 90-minutes per week each week during 3-months. Each group session was centered in a particular topic, participants were able to select different media free available in Internet.
- GROBER-BUSCHKE TEST [ Time Frame: Baseline assessment before intervention, change from baseline at 3 months immediately after intervention ]Assessment of free and cued recall of episodic memory
- Technologies Acceptation Questionnaire [ Time Frame: Baseline assessment before intervention, change from baseline at 3 months immediately after intervention ]Assessment of acceptability of communication and information technologies
