Causes of Cognitive Disorders

Please visit our Neurology page for more details.

People with cognitive disorders experience problems with memory and thinking ability.

Primary among these is Dementia – a disorder which affects the older population most. As we are all living longer, we have found that dementia rates double every 5 years over the age of 65.
