cognitive dysfunction

Cognitive dysfunctions are a category of mental health disorders that primarily affect learning, memory, perception, and problem solving, and include amnesia, dementia, and delirium.

 Causes vary between the different types of disorders but most include damage to the memory portions of the brain.

 Treatments depend on how the disorder is caused. Medication and therapies are the most common treatments; however, for some types of disorders such as certain types of amnesia, treatments can suppress the symptoms but there is currently no cure.
