Neurocognitive disorders

Neurocognitive disorders are characterized by decline from an attained level of cognitive functioning mainly when physical changes occurs in brain, such as after neurological and mental illness, drug use, or brain injury. The two major degenerative causes of dementia are Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia.  Dementia is usually caused by degeneration in the cerebral cortex, the part of the brain responsible for thoughts, memories, actions, and personality. Death of brain cells in this region leads to the cognitive impairments that characterise dementia. Vascular dementia is the broad term for dementia associated with problems of circulation of blood to the brain.
