    Vascular dementia is a condition that causes changes in thinking skills. Vascular dementia can cause problems with memory, speech or balance. These changes can happen suddenly or begin mildly and get worse over time. Vascular dementia is caused by conditions that damage blood vessels, reducing or blocking blood flow to the brain.   Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias have a high impact on public health and are a priority for NIH-supported research. * A Glossary of terms is found at the end of this document.

    Frontotemporal dementia (FTD), a common cause of dementia, is a group of disorders that occur when nerve cells in the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain are lost. This causes the lobes to shrink. FTD can affect behavior, personality, language, and movement. These disorders are among the most common dementias that strike at younger ages. People with dementia differ in the patterns of problems they have, and the speed with which their abilities deteriorate. A person with dementia's abilities may change from day to day, or even within the same day. What is certain though is that the person’s abilities will deteriorate; this may happen rapidly in a period of a few months or slowly over a number of years.

Research Progress in Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia. Volume 4: Medicine & Health Science Books @ Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common type of neurodegenerative disorder in the ageing population, with dementia as a common consequence. AD is defined pathologically by the appearance of extracellular senile plaques and intracellular neurofibrillary tangles, as described by Alois Alzheimer about a century ago.

The causes for AD include genetic predisposition in a small population 3/5(1).

Population-based studies suggest that factors associated with overall good health may also reduce the risk of dementia and cognitive decline.
