Cognitive disorders are a category of mental health disorders that primarily affect learning, memory, perception, and problem solving, and include amnesia, dementia, and delirium. The four major categories of cognitive disorders are: delirium (a change in consciousness that develops over a short period of time in which people have a reduced awareness of their environment); dementia (a progressive deterioration of brain function that is marked by impairment of memory, confusion and inability to concentrate; amnesia (a significant loss of the memory, despite no loss of other cognitive functions like there is in dementia; and cognitive disorders not otherwise specified (cognitive impairment presumed to be due to a general medical condition or substance use and does not fit into the other categories).
Cognitive disorders are defined as any disorder that significantly impairs the cognitive function of an individual to the point where normal functioning in society is impossible without treatment. Some common cognitive disorders include Dementia, Developmental disorders, Motor skill disorders, Amnesia, Substance-induced cognitive impairment.
