The mini-mental state examination (MMSE), Blessed-Roth behavior scale (BBS), activieies of daily living (ADL) scale and scores of signs and symptoms based traditional Chinese medicine were used to assess cases in both groups before and after the treatment. Results: The MMSE score and improvemnt of TCM-based signs and symptoms in the scalp acupuncture grop were significantly better than that in the control group (P<0.01), while there wer no statistical differences between the two groups in BBS and ADL score (P<0.05). The marked and total effective rates of cognition improvement in the scalp acupuncture group were significantly better than that in the control group, while there were no significant differences between the two groups in improvement of social behavior and TCM-based signs and symptoms.
