Theme: Advances in the Field of Dementia Research

Webinar on Dementia  will be hosted on January 22, 2021 at 9:30 AM (Dubai,UAE time zone). This Webinars aims to support all researchers and scholars from all over the world in delivering their ideas by a safe and successful event.  The goal of webinar/online event is to make international online events as safe as possible from public health risks of the Covid-19 with technical support to host for events. The main objective of this Dementia 2021 is, “Exploring advances in the field of dementia research”

The Dementia 2021 will accentuation on the on going examination and revelations in the field of Dementia showing a remarkable open door for the specialists, medicinal services experts, universities personnel, neurologists, registered Neurosurgery and specialists over the world to meet, organize and recognize new logical advancements in the field.



Session1. Causes of dementia

Different types of dementia can affect people differently, and everyone will experience symptoms in their own way. It occurs when certain brain cells are damaged. Many conditions can cause dementia including degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinsons, and Huntington’s. Each cause of dementia causes damage to a different set of brain cells.

Session2. Vascular Dementia

Early stage vascular dementia slightly resembles Alzheimer’s, although instead of being primarily characterized by forgetfulness, it is more associated with difficulty planning, decision-making, and following steps. Other early symptoms include slower speed of thought, difficulty maintaining focus, and increased likelihood of experiencing anxiety, depression, and mood swings. Following one or more strokes, Vascular dementia may also include physical symptoms such as vision or speech problems and weakness in limbs, although these symptoms might show improvement with rehabilitation.

Session3. Mild cognitive impairment (MCI)

Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is a condition in which someone has minor problems with cognition - their mental abilities such as memory or thinking. In MCI these difficulties are worse than would normally be expected for a healthy person of their age. However, the symptoms are not severe enough to interfere significantly with daily life, and so are not defined as dementia.

It is estimated that between 5 and 20% of people aged over 65 have MCI. It is not a type of dementia, but a person with MCI is more likely to go on to develop dementia. This page explains what MCI is, the link between MCI and dementia, and the benefits of diagnosing MCI. It then looks at treatments for MCI, ways to cope with the symptoms, and how you can reduce your risk of developing MCI and dementia. Many people who are diagnosed with MCI use this as an opportunity to change their lifestyle for the better. There is a lot that someone can do to help reduce their chances of MCI progressing to dementia.

Session4. Dementia with lewy bodies (DLB)

Lewy  body of dementia can also look a little like Alzheimer’s in the early stage, although there are some key differences. In the early stage of Dementia with Lewy bodies (LBD), the individual’s attention and awareness can fluctuate greatly from day to day, or even from moment to moment. Many also have recurrent visual hallucinations that they are able to describe in vivid detail, and some have auditory hallucinations as well. Sometimes these can lead to faulty perceptions and delusions of persecution.

Session5. Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson-type motor skills problems (e.g. slowness, stiffness, tremors) are also common in people with dementia with Lewy Bodies (LBD) and are often present at the time of diagnosis

Session6. Semantic Dementia

Semantic dementia refers to a progressive loss of the ability to remember the meaning of words, faces and objects, which results from shrinkage of the temporal lobes of the brain. However, there is wide variation in the speed of progression.  Some people show little decline over the course of a year whereas others change more quickly.  Usually, monitoring a person’s progress over a year will give a good guide as to the likely future rate of progression.
