Tests designed to assess various aspects of neurocognitive function and/or dementia.

Impairment of the vestibular function of both inner ears which can cause difficulties with balance, gait, VERTIGO, and visual blurring.

Vegetative state refers to the neurocognitive status of individuals with severe brain damage, in whom physiologic functions (sleep-wake cycles, autonomic control, and breathing) persist, but awareness (including all cognitive function and emotion) is abolished.
