Neurobehavioral Symptoms (NPS) have been usually measured with the Neuropsychiatric-Inventory (NPI-Q) (Kaufer et al., 2000) in pre-dementia individuals. However, this instrument was designed to dementia states. The Mild Behavioral Impairment Checklist (MBI-C) (Ismail et al., 2017) is an instrument developed to evaluate NPS in pre-dementia states, including Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and people with Subjective Cognitive Complaints (SCC). Evidence of longitudinal behavioral change obtained with the MBI-C is still scarce. Our objective was to compare NPS scores, measured with the NPI-Q and the MBI-C, in MCI and SCC participants, at follow-up.
