Some neurologic disorders are more common in the elderly, and their prevalence is increasing with higher life expectancies. Although changes in the brain that are associated with aging cannot be prevented, the onset of the impairment of function can be delayed, and neuropsychological performance can be improved by certain measures, including mental and physical exercises. Neurorehabilitation is important in the management of neurologic disorders of the elderly, with an emphasis on gait training.

Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy is a syndrome classically characterized by (1) slowly progressive muscle weakness and wasting in a scapulo-humeroperoneal distribution, (2) early contractures of the elbows, ankles, and posterior neck, and (3) dilated cardiomyopathy with conduction defects. It can be inherited in an X-lined or autosomal manner and result from mutations in several different genes. Variations in the classical phenotype can occur as a result of mutations in the causative genes.

Reflex syncope is a neurally-mediated transient loss of consciousness that occurs when the body inappropriately reacts to triggers such as intense emotion, pain, or trauma, sudden postural changes, or others. Vasovagal syncope is the most common form. Triggering of the cardiovascular reflexes produces vasodilation or bradycardia, with a resultant fall in blood pressure and cerebral perfusion.

Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) is an inflammatory demyelinating disorder predominantly affecting white and gray matter in the brain and spinal cord. Clinical presentation includes encephalopathy (which may manifest as behavioral change, profound irritability, or altered consciousness) that cannot be explained by fever and polyfocal neurologic deficits. Systemic symptoms such as fever, headache, and fatigue often precede the development of neurologic deficits.
