Exhibition overview

Tthe 8th International Congress on Vascular Dementia - ICVD 2013 - will be held in Athens, Greece in October 2013. It aims to be a showcase for the discussion of new developments in the area of dementia with special attention to cerebrovascular diseases affecting cognition. The congress will be an opportunity to deliberate on large and small vessel brain diseases and how they contribute to cognitive decline. There will be an effort to try to identify specific biological and psychological markers, if any, of vascular dementia, and also the genetic factors involved. The overlap with Alzheimer's disease will be a central issue, as will be the white matter changes frequently seen in dementia. The Neuropathology features of dementia, experimental animal models, and new understanding of pathogenic mechanisms will all be highlighted at the congress.
