Cognitive Disorders Clinics


The Cognitive Disorders Service

The Cognitive Disorders Service runs in parallel with the Dementia Research Centre (DRC), part of the Department of Neurodegenerative Disease at the UCL Institute of Neurology (ION). The clinical and research components form a national centre of excellence for diagnosis and treatment of patients with cognitive problems, and the group is recognised internationally for ground-breaking research in dementia.

All forms of cognitive disorder are seen; however, we have particular expertise in young onset dementia, familial dementias and unusual degenerative diseases. Progressive disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD), vascular dementia or frontotemporal dementia are commonly seen, but other less common disorders also assessed including limbic encephalitis, hereditary leukodystrophies and acquired cognitive problems such as amnesia, aphasia, visuospatial problems, apraxia, facial recognition and executive dysfunction due to varying aetiologies.
