Alzheimer Disease (AD), characterized by cognitive and psycho-behavioral troubles, concerns essentially 65 years old and older patients. Antalgic and psychotropic treatments have adverse e...
This study is going to apply neuropsychological battery tests to measure cognitive function across multiple cognitive domains in our cohort of 600 maintenance hemodialysis patients and eva...
The purpose of this study is to better understand the experience of living alone in older age with cognitive impairment. We recruit adults 55+ living alone with cognitive impairment such ...
Preexisting cognitive impairment, such as mild cognitive impairment, is common in many elderly patients who undergoing major surgeries. Accumulating evidence has demonstrated that preexist...
Vascular cognitive impairment (VCI) is one of the most frequent causes of cognitive impairment associated with aging. So far, there is no approved treatment for VCI. Recent studies have su...
Mild cognitive impairment is a common feature of Parkinson's disease, even at the earliest disease stages, but there is variation in the nature and severity of cognitive involvement and in the risk of...
An increasing number of older persons with cognitive impairment use inpatient services for co-occurring acute illness. Research has demonstrated that persons with cognitive impairment face more advers...
Cognitive dysfunction has been reported in individuals with fibromyalgia. However, findings regarding cognitive function examined using neuropsychological tests have been inconsistent. The aim of the ...
Recent studies suggest older patients hospitalized for community-acquired pneumonia are at risk for new-onset cognitive impairment. The characteristics of long-term cognitive impairment after pneumoni...
Metabolic syndrome (MetS) increases the risk of cognitive impairment in normal aging but this has not been studied in Parkinson's Disease (PD). The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact ...

A childhood disorder predominately affecting boys and similar to autism (AUTISTIC DISORDER). It is characterized by severe, sustained, clinically significant impairment of social interaction, and restricted repetitive and stereotyped patterns of behavior. In contrast to autism, there are no clinically significant delays in language or cognitive development. (From DSM-IV)
A condition characterized genotypically by mutation of the distal end of the long arm of the X chromosome (at gene loci FRAXA or FRAXE) and phenotypically by cognitive impairment, hyperactivity, SEIZURES, language delay, and enlargement of the ears, head, and testes. MENTAL RETARDATION occurs in nearly all males and roughly 50% of females with the full mutation of FRAXA. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p226)
Abnormal structures located chiefly in distal dendrites and, along with NEUROFIBRILLARY TANGLES and SENILE PLAQUES, constitute the three morphological hallmarks of ALZHEIMER DISEASE. Neuropil threads are made up of straight and paired helical filaments which consist of abnormally phosphorylated microtubule-associated tau proteins. It has been suggested that the threads have a major role in the cognitive impairment seen in Alzheimer disease.
