The manifestation of neurological and psychiatric symptoms (NPS) has given birth to the field of neuropsychiatry, which includes conditions such as apathy, depression, sleep disorders, hallucinations, delusions, psychosis, agitation, aggression, and dementia. The rates of NPS have been shown to increase as cognitive ability declines and may be useful in predicting transition from mild cognitive impairment (MCI) to dementia. A variety of factors such as age, genetic predisposition, medication side effects, and traumatic brain injury, to name a few, can cause NPS to emerge. Consequently, to better identify the symptomatology and understand the treatment modalities for dementia, join Dr. Payal Sharma Kamath live on Medflix!
