Epidemiological reviews, glossy medical, neuroimaging, neuropsychological, molecular organic, and genetic reviews have significantly improved our wisdom approximately getting old procedures of the human mind, its sequelae, diagnostic, and healing probabilities and boundaries. as well as Alzheimer's affliction and different degenerative dementias, the effect of cerebrovascular lesions and their danger elements within the pathogenesis of cognitive problems of the elderly are more and more said, and the popularity of light cognitive impairment as a common preliminary degree of constructing dementia is turning into an more and more vital diagnostic and healing challenge. The integrated papers have been offered on the seventh foreign Symposium in Graz, Sept. 2001 and provides a well timed evaluation of the present and destiny innovations of pathogenesis, prognosis, and therapy suggestions of pathological mind growing older and dementias, early reputation of gentle cognitive impairment and destiny possiblities of prevention of dementing processes.

Cut-offs of WML distribution Most studies, even if they rate lesions (semi-) quantitatively, use a cut-off point when th ey report prevalences of WML.

Associations of progression with specific risk factors will probably enable to identify high risk groups as targets for therapeutical intervention. Frequency of progression of small vessel disease related brain abnormalities To the present the Austrian Stroke Prevention Study is the only investigation that sytematically explored the frequency and risk factors of progression of cerebral small vessel disease.

Silent lacunar infarcts were significantly more often seen in women in the CHS and Rotterdam Scan Study, adjusted for age. Ethnicity Reports on ethnic differences in WML and silent lacunar infarcts prevalences are scarce and equivocal.
