Clinical diagnostic criteria for dementia associated with Parkinson's disease
TLDR
Clinical diagnostic criteria for probable and possible PD‐D are proposed, characterized by impairment in attention, memory, executive and visuo‐spatial functions, behavioral symptoms such as affective changes, hallucinations, and apathy are frequent.
Diagnosis and management of dementia with Lewy bodies
TLDR
The authors propose a new scheme for the pathologic assessment of LBs and Lewy neurites (LN) using alpha-synuclein immunohistochemistry and semiquantitative grading of lesion density, with the pattern of regional involvement being more important than total LB count.
Consensus guidelines for the clinical and pathologic diagnosis of dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB): report of the consortium on DLB international workshop.
TLDR
This work identified progressive disabling mental impairment progressing to dementia as the central feature of DLB, and identified optimal staining methods for each of these and devised a protocol for the evaluation of cortical LB frequency based on a brain sampling procedure consistent with CERAD.

TLDR
The main focus of this article is to operationalize the diagnosis of PD‐D and to propose pratical guidelines based on a two level process depending upon the clinical scenario and the expertise of the evaluator involved in the assessment.
Diagnosis and management of dementia with Lewy bodies
The Dementia with Lewy Bodies (DLB) Consortium has refined its recommendations about the clinical and pathologic diagnosis of DLB, updating the previous report, which has been in widespread use for

SIC Task Force appraisal of clinical diagnostic criteria for parkinsonian disorders
TLDR
This review summarizes the findings of the SIC Task Force for the study of diagnostic criteria for parkinsonian disorders in the areas of Parkinson's disease, dementia with Lewy bodies, progressive supranuclear palsy, multiple system atrophy, and corticobasal degeneration.
Why people see things that are not there: A novel Perception and Attention Deficit model for recurrent complex visual hallucinations
TLDR
A novel Perception and Attention Deficit (PAD) model for RCVH is proposed, suggesting that a combination of impaired attentional binding and poor sensory activation of a correct proto-object, in conjunction with a relatively intact scene representation, allows the intrusion of a hallucinatory proto- object into a scene perception.
Cerebral atrophy in Parkinson's disease with and without dementia: a comparison with Alzheimer's disease, dementia with Lewy bodies and controls.
TLDR
The aim of this cross-sectional study was to establish the pattern of cerebral atrophy on MRI in Parkinson's disease patients with dementia, and voxel-based morphometry (VBM) was used to provide an unbiased means of investigating brain volume loss.
