Description

At the end of this talk attendees will be able to compare and contrast the differences between Alzheimer’s Disease and other common non-Alzheimer’s dementias, including Lewy Body Dementia, Frontotemporal Dementia, and Vascular Dementia. They will also be able to draw basic correlations between specific regions of the brain, and the outward behavioral and cognitive changes they observe.
