A Review on Therapies and Treatments for Cognitive Inabilities

Nizar Haddad, Raghdan Khreisha.


Abstract

The prevalence of Dementia, a cognitive brain dysfunction which comprises Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases
is widespread irrespective of age, sex and geography. The loss in neuro transmission due to a fault in synapses in
neurons lead to dementia and is an arduous task for identification. These chronic illnesses directly influence the
lifestyle of the patients and hence early diagnosis & treatments through medications and paramedical therapies
provide relief on the stress faced by healthcare infrastructure and the care takers. This review identifies and
disseminates the clinical features and consequences of dementia, different radiological techniques to assess the
extent of brain disorder. Finally, the importance of non-pharmaceutical therapies on treating dementia is
emphasized.
