The level of ischemic cerebrovascular disease was evaluated as mild, moderate, and severe based on the size and number of infarcts in the brain. 18Cited by: The second refers to an exciting newly emerging science that offers the potential for at least partial remediation of traumatic brain injury as well as dementing disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease. This intervention is referred to as Photobiomodulation. Dr.5/5(1).
WM attenuation is also frequently observed in neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB). On magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, such changes are apparent as WM lesions which increase with older age [ 18 ] and particularly so in AD and DLB compared to ageing controls, though to a lesser extent than in VaD [ 5 ].Cited by: Sleep disturbance is a frequent complaint among aged persons, with more than 80% of those 65 and older reporting some degree of disruption. 1 It is a problem for elderly individuals with and without signs of an age-associated, neurodegenerative dementia,2, 3 although symptoms are worse in those patients with a dementing illness. This finding has led to controversy about the exact nature of Cited by:

Dementia itself is not a disease, but a syndrome; its symptoms are common to several brain diseases. It will get worse over time. But medications might slow that decline and help with symptoms. Whats Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s disease is a dementing illness characterized histologicaly by neuritic plaques and tangles, accompanied by neuronal cell loss.
Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive disease that destroys memory and other important mental functions – the brain cells die causing steady decline in brain function.
Background: Alzheimer's disease (AD) and dementia are chronic diseases with progressive deterioration of cognition, function, and behavior leading to severe disability and death.
