Because this site is so filled with information, I decided to make it as easy as possible for you by dividing it into catergories. They are; Parkinson's , Multi-Infarct Dementia, Huntington's, Picks, Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease, MS, Hydrocephlus, AIDS Dementia, Alcohol Dementia, Down Syndrome, Lewy Body Dementia, basic Dementia informationand Progressive Supranuclear Palsy. Oh, there's also an article pertaining to the symptoms, diagnosing etc. of Schizophrenia.
Also, beside each directory I have included what you will find in that area...plus a little bit about each topic.
