Neurobehavioral & Cognitive Disorders

Includes focal and generalized disorders of higher brain function, both static and progressive, congenital, developmental, static or progressive/degenerative. Dementias are disorders characterized by intellectual deterioration. Dementia is sometimes inappropriately referred to as senility and erroneously attributed to arteriosclerosis (“hardening of the arteries”).
