About the Course:

Neuropsychological assessment methods have identified the earliest, most definitive cognitive and behavioral symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease; this has allowed for the identification, staging, and tracking of the disease. This article focuses on the pathognomonic neuropsychological characteristics of dementia stemming from Alzheimer’s disease versus “normal,” age-related cognitive decline and from dementia caused by other neurodegenerative diseases.
