At one time or another, almost everyone has a lapse in memory.
Where did I park the car?
Where are my glasses?
What is that person’s name?
When memory lapses interfere with social or work activities, you may need medical care provided by the University of Mississippi Medical Center’s specialized neurological services.
Physicians specializing in memory disorders work with patients and their families to evaluate causes of memory loss and dementia. Dementia is characterized by memory loss, personality changes, and impaired judgment, language, or spatial skills. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia, but other conditions also can affect cognitive skills, including strokes, Parkinson’s disease, adult hydrocephalus, nutritional deficiencies, depression, brain infections, or traumatic brain injury.
Early diagnosis and management of these conditions are key to maintaining quality of life. As part of the state’s only academic medical center, UMMC is helping lead the way in new treatments and therapies for these disabling conditions.
