Do cognitive disorders have neurological causes?

Many people notice disturbances in their mental capacity, especially in their memory. This doesn’t always point to dementia. The cause can also be an infection, a metabolic disorder or mental illness. A neurologist can examine the extent of the observed restrictions by means of a targeted anamnesis, EEG, neuropsychological testing and laboratory analyses. If necessary, these measures can be supplemented by an MRI or spinal fluid analysis and a therapy can be initiated.
