Vascular Neurocognitive disorder
Neurocognitive Disorders develop much later than Intellectual disability and other learning disorders, which are believed to be present at birth. When the brain is damaged, the effects are irreversible, accumulating until learning, memory or consciousness are obviously impaired.
Neurocognitive disorder is a progressive and degenerative condition marked by gradual deterioration of a range of Cognitive abilities including memory, language, planning, organizing, sequencing and abstracting information.
Neurocognitive Disorders are further reviewed in two classes: Dilirium and Major or Mild Neurocognitive Disorder
