Cognitive disorders are mental conditions that interfere with a person’s ability to think clearly and precisely. The types and severity of cognitive disorders vary, but most involve an impairment in perception, memory, judgment, reasoning, and awareness. Cognitive disorders can also have a negative effect on how one acquires and processes new information.
While there is no cure for any form of cognitive disorders, the symptoms can be successfully managed through proper treatment. With such treatment, people who are struggling with these disorders can go on to lead happy and productive lives.
The cognitive disorders that we treat at Ohio Hospital for Psychiatry include:
