A Randomized Pivotal Study of RenewTM NCP-5 for the Treatment of Mild Cognitive Impairment due to Alzheimer's Disease or Mild Dementia of the Alzheimer's Type is a pivotal, single blind, p...
This study is being done to learn more about normal thinking and behavior, mild thinking and behavior problems, Frontotemporal Dementia and other forms of dementia in families in which one...
So far, no drugs have shown to stop or delay the pathological processes of dementia. Available pharmacological treatment includes a small number of drugs; cholinesterase inhibitors like do...
This project is based on a three-year program that aims to improve the knowledge of the socioeconomic consequences of dementia in Norway. By including patients with and without dementia in...
A study to investigate the effectiveness of a reminder tool application at increasing performance on memory tasks in people with mild dementia
Complex, well-formed, and detailed visual hallucinations (VHs) are among the core clinical features of dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB). We investigated the diagnostic value of VHs in different types o...
Neuropsychiatric symptoms (NPS) are non-cognitive, behavioral, or psychiatric symptoms, common in mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and associated with a higher risk of dementia. Mild behavioral impairm...
Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is a high risk of conversion to dementia and gait dysfunction is also a risk for dementia. The goal of the study was to examine if co-occurrence of MCI and slow gait (S...
Decreased hippocampal volume is a biomarker of Alzheimer disease (AD). The association of hippocampal volume with gait variability across the spectrum of AD, especially in early stages, has been few s...
The Clock Drawing Test (CDT) is a valid alternative screening tool to the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) and, crucially, it may be completed faster. The aim of our study was to standardize and s...
Heterogeneous group of neurodegenerative disorders characterized by frontal and temporal lobe atrophy associated with neuronal loss, gliosis, and dementia. Patients exhibit progressive changes in social, behavioral, and/or language function. Multiple subtypes or forms are recognized based on presence or absence of TAU PROTEIN inclusions. FTLD includes three clinical syndromes: FRONTOTEMPORAL DEMENTIA, semantic dementia, and PRIMARY PROGRESSIVE NONFLUENT APHASIA.
Tests designed to assess various aspects of neurocognitive function and/or dementia.
The most common clinical form of FRONTOTEMPORAL LOBAR DEGENERATION, this dementia presents with personality and behavioral changes often associated with disinhibition, apathy, and lack of insight.
An imprecise term referring to dementia associated with CEREBROVASCULAR DISORDERS, including CEREBRAL INFARCTION (single or multiple), and conditions associated with chronic BRAIN ISCHEMIA. Diffuse, cortical, and subcortical subtypes have been described. (From Gerontol Geriatr 1998 Feb;31(1):36-44)
A mitochondrial encephalomyopathy characterized clinically by a mixed seizure disorder, myoclonus, progressive ataxia, spasticity, and a mild myopathy. Dysarthria, optic atrophy, growth retardation, deafness, and dementia may also occur. This condition tends to present in childhood and to be transmitted via maternal lineage. Muscle biopsies reveal ragged-red fibers and respiratory chain enzymatic defects. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p986)
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
