Abstract

Neurocognitive disorders (NCDs) are defined by a significant decline from a previous level of cognitive functioning. This category consists of three syndromes: major NCD, mild NCD, and delirium. Major and mild NCD are diagnosed when an individual shows impairment in at least one of the following cognitive domains: complex attention, executive ability, learning and memory, language, perceptual motor, or social cognition. Delirium is characterized by a temporary disturbance in attention. This article includes the history, development, and diagnosis of NCD.
