What are Cognitive Disorders?

Cognitive disorders are disorders that primarily affect learning, memory, perception, and problem solving. 

Although Alzheimer's Disease accounts for the majority of cases of cognitive disorders, there are various medical conditions that affect mental functions such as memory, thinking, and the ability to reason, including frontotemporal degeneration, Huntington’s disease, Lewy body disease, traumatic brain injury (TBI), Parkinson’s disease, prion disease, and dementia/neurocognitive issues due to HIV infection.
