Dementia in the Oldest Old
Thursday, September 23 at 4 pm ET

Register Now

Dementia affects millions of Americans, with a prevalence increasing with age. The differential diagnosis of dementia also changes with age, with the oldest old (people above the age of 90) featuring a unique distribution of etiologies. These include limbic-predominant age-related TDP-43 encephalopathy (LATE) and primary age-related tauopathy (PART), newly formalized neuropathological changes in the aging brain which can mimic Alzheimer’s disease.

Join the AFMR conference on “Dementia in the oldest old” to hear Dr. Sakina Ouedraogo Tall review the diagnostic approach of cognitive impairment in Older Adults and Dr. Arjun Masurkar discuss what we know about LATE and PART.
