    Author(s): Karthikeyan KV*, Subramaniyan K and Shanu T

    Dementia refers to a group of disorders caused by the gradual dysfunction and death of brain cells. This disorder can be described clinically as a syndrome that causes a decline in cognitive domain (i.e., attention, memory, executive function, visual-spatial ability, and language)EEG may play an important role in detecting and classifying dementia because of its significant influence on dementia abnormalities in terms of rhythm activity .An increase in EEG slow wave activity (theta and delta frequencies) together with decreased activity in the alpha frequency band are considered to be typical findings in the various types of dementia. Aim and Objective: An analysis of electroencephalographic changes in patients diagnosed with dementia and trying to find significance in diagnosis. Methods and Materials: This study is an observational cross sectional study carried out in 30 patients dia.. View More»
