Dementia is a term used to describe a group of symptoms that can be caused by a number of conditions affecting the brain. It is most commonly caused by Alzheimer's disease but may also be caused by Huntington's disease, vascular dementia, or Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. People with dementia symptoms may have memory loss, experience personality and behavioral problems, and lose their ability to solve problems and maintain emotional control. Drugs that are specifically used to treat Alzheimer's disease and other progressive dementias are now available.
