Memory and sleep disorders in an outpatient setting

Full Text:


The paper describes cases that clearly demonstrate that the neurological status shows a preponderance of cognitive, emotional, and behavioral disorders in both cerebral vascular and neurodegenerative diseases just at the early stages. At the same time sleep disorders occupy the most important place among the behavioral disorders. So a neurologist must have advanced knowledge of this problem and practical skills in diagnosing neuropsychological disorders. Only consideration of all their clinical features allows the use of effective treatment that is able to improve the quality of life in a patient and his relatives, to prevent or delay the occurrence of severe complications.
