Abstract

Dementia is often combined with other mental disorders which can manifest at different stages of the disease. The severity and rate of progression of these disorders may depend on the nosological nature of the disease producing the dementia, as well as environmental factors, concomitant diseases, etc. Each psychopathological syndrome is linked with a characteristic neurotransmitter imbalance and selective involvement of different parts of the CNS in the pathological process. Treatment must be selected individually taking account of the balance of benefits and the risks of prescribed medications.
