CHAPTER 2

As the aging population throughout the World steadily increases, within the next two decades cognitive dysfunction will emerge as a major clinical and economic problem. Its diagnosis is becoming progressively easier by the use of a wide range of cognitive tests. However, once diagnosed it is apparent that therapeutic intervention is still not possible, with the underlying disease process either remaining static or progressing to Alzheimer’s disease.
