Senescence, prodromal dementia, electrophysiological biomarkers.
Dementia in the elderly is described by symptoms of attentional deficits, memory impairments, executive dysfunction and cognitive decline. In several major neurodegenerative disorders is occurred dementia. Frontotemporal dementia and hippocampal sclerosis of aging, Lewy body dementia, non-Alzheimer's form as vascular dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, which vary between brain regions like the hippocampus, entorhinal cortex, medial temporal lobe, inferior parietal cortex and frontal cortex, may explain a magnitude of deficits in different cognitive domains. Preservation of cognitive function is important for maintenance of the quality of life of older adults.Author(s): Juliana Dushanova
