Geriatric Neurology

Geriatric neurology is the branch of medicine, deals with the study of neurologic disorders occurring in elderly. Geriatrics is concerned with treating and diagnosing illness that occurs in adults, usually over the age of 60. Accurate diagnosis of neurological disorders in older adults can be difficult because the signs of disease may mimic normal signs of aging. Patients frequently have more than a neurologic disease which makes it more difficult to find the best treatment in that case. Aging also brings slight memory loss which is normal until and unless it intervenes daily activities. Memory loss range from treatable conditions such as depression, vitamin B12 deficiency, to more severe dementia and sleep disorders.
