Mild and Major Neurocognitive Disorders

by Helen Farrell, MD

Neurocognitive disorder is a general term that describes decreased mental function resulting from a medical disease other than a psychiatric illness. It is often used synonymously (but incorrectly) with dementia. Major and mild neurocognitive disorders can include childhood developmental delay, ADHD, delirium, Alzheimer disease, and Parkinson disease. Recognizing early signs of these neurocognitive disorders may allow you to counsel patients and offer treatment sooner rather than later, sparing them and their families significant stress.
