Dementia may be an extensive term that describes a loss of thinking ability, memory, and other mental abilities. Many conditions can cause dementia. A neurodegenerative disorder accounts for a condition that sums up when the parts of your brain used for learning, memory, deciding, and language are damaged or diseased. Dementia is not a disease instead it is characterized as one of the major neurocognitive disorder. Cause of dementia can nearly be associated with 50 other conditions in which Alzheimer’s Disease is the most common cause of dementia. Based on the part of brain affected, dementia can be split into two groups as Cortical Dementia (problems in the cerebral cortex) and Subcortical Dementia (problems in the brain beneath the cortex).
