|Dementia||Epilepsy||Headache||History of Neurology in Poland|
|Section Heads: Tomasz Gabryelewicz, Poland & Lefkos Middleton, UK|
|17:10-19:00||SESSION 20 | DEMENTIA - TREATMENT|
|Chairs: Judith Aharon, Israel|
|17:10-18:05||Does cognitive stimulation have value in the treatment of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and early dementia?|
Cognitive stimulation has been suggested as an important disease modifying strategy in people with early cognitive decline including engagement in crossword puzzles, bridge playing, and computer-based excercises. But are these really effective? What is the evidence?
Host: Dorota Religa, Sweden

|18:05-19:00||Is inflammation a valid target for intervention in AD?|
Inflammatory processes occur in any damaged tissue, and are seen in AD brains as activated microglia and astrocytes, as well as elevated cytokine and chemokine levels. Are these detrimental and should they be manipulated?

The clinical criteria of NPH are sensitive and predictive of response to shunting
Not all patients shunted for NPH can improve after surgery. Patient's clinical profile, shunt functioning, quality of surgery may contribute. Predictors for improvement are often misleading. Clinical, physiological measurement, and imaging factors can present with different pros and cons.
