In brief: Memory and thought
Mild cognitive impairment is difficulty in memory and ability to carry out thought processes- and although it's mild, there's can be some confusion involved.
It's difficult to lay down new memories with cognitive impairment.

In brief: Early dementia
The diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment (mci) is defined as impairment in one (and only one) cognitive domain.
This is a new version of what had been called "isolated memory impairment." thought by some to be early signs of alzheimer's disease, mci is mild in nature and isolated to one area.
