C220 - Memory Disorders: A Case-based Approach

Event Time: Thursday April 27, 2017 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Aging, Dementia, Cognitive, and Behavioral Neurology
Director(s): David Wolk MD
Description: Memory loss is almost certainly the most common presenting cognitive complaint encountered by neurologists and internists in clinical practice. However, the underlying cognitive impairment may be quite disparate, reflecting the multiple memory systems that can dysfunction. Even within a particular type of memory (e.g., episodic memory), qualitative differences in the nature of the impairment may be due to disruption of different underlying component processes. As these systems and subprocesses have unique functional neuroanatomical underpinnings, identification has localizing value which ultimately assists in determining the etiology. Faculty will present cases to highlight practical approaches to the history and examination to make these distinctions and discuss use of ancillary studies and available therapeutic interventions.
Completion Message: Participants should develop a framework for the evaluation of patients with memory disorders with a particular focus on discriminating different types of memory failures and their implication for the underlying brain “lesion“ and diagnosis.
