Alzheimer’s dementia due to deposition of amyloid protein in the brain (Senile plaques) & neurofibrillary tangles, it is the most common cause of demenia in US.
Multi infarct demenia: the 2nd most common cause of dementia, caused by a number of small strokes or sometimes, one large stroke preceded or followed by other smaller strokes. Multi infarct demenia can cause cognitive impairment.
