In brief: Same as MCI

It is working in progress.
Mild cognitve impairment, pre alzheimer's, syndromal alzheimer's are very similar but it is not clearly defined. Dementia is very broad term and alzheimer's disease is the most common form of dementia.

In brief: Prodromal

Mild cognitive impairment or prodromal alzheimer's disease are similar categories, and represent the first signs of cognitive issues, usually problems with amnestic memory, without other intellectual issues initially.
