Several recent studies have shown that dementia is common in Parkinson's disease (PD), and that in some patients, cognitive impairment occurs even at the time of diagnosis. The point prevalence of dementia in PD is close to 30% and the incidence rate is increased 4-6 times as compared to controls. The cumulative prevalence is very high, at least 75% of PD patients who survive for more than 10 years will develop dementia. The mean time from onset of PD to dementia is approximately 10 years… Expand
Crossover between Lewy Body Pathology and Alzheimer ’ s Dementia
Several recent studies have shown that dementia is common in Parkinson’s Disease (PD), and that in some patients, cognitive impairment occurs even at the time of diagnosis. The point prevalence ofExpand
Cognitive decline in Parkinson’s disease: the complex picture
TLDR
Evidence from neuroimaging studies using different methods and techniques suggests that in addition to degeneration of the dopaminergic system, other mechanisms have a role including β-amyloid and tau deposition, and that specific cognitive scales could help identifying a malignant profile. Expand
Biomarkers: Parkinson disease with dementia and dementia with Lewy bodies.
TLDR
There are no markers that unequivocally distinguish between Parkinson's disease with dementia (PDD) and DLB, and the most promising tools with which to separate them at present are cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) markers and positron emission tomography (PET) scanning that indicate increased amyloid-beta burden in DLB compared to PDD.

Structural Neuroimaging Markers of Cognitive Decline in Parkinson's Disease
TLDR
This review aims to outline the neuroimaging possibilities in diagnosing cognitive impairment in patients with Parkinson's disease and to take into consideration the near-future possibilities of their implementation into clinical practice. Expand
Cognitive Impairment and Dementia in Parkinson’s Disease: Clinical Features, Diagnosis, and Management
TLDR
This manuscript has synthesized relevant data in order to obtain a pragmatic and updated review regarding cognitive decline in PD, from milder stages to dementia. Expand
Predictors of dementia in Parkinson disease
TLDR
Cardiovascular autonomic dysfunction, REM sleep behavior disorder, color discrimination ability, and gait dysfunction strongly predict development of dementia in Parkinson disease. Expand
Genetic characterization of cognitive impairment in Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
A detailed characterization of cognitive impairment in Parkinson’s disease is performed, showing that impairments in tasks involving executive, visuospatial and memory functions are common in newly diagnosed patients, and that the impairments are associated with specific abnormalities in regional brain activation.

If I only had a brain : Epidemiological Studies of Parkinson's disease
TLDR
The overall aim of this thesis was to increase the understanding of the etiology of PD and of the causes of comorbidity of parkinsonism and dementia. Expand
Neuroimaging correlates of cognitive impairment and dementia in Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
The aetiology and neuropsychological profiles of PD-MCI and PDD are discussed, the putative imaging substrates in light of evidence from multi-modal neuroimaging studies are summarized, limitations in the present literature are highlighted, and recommendations for future research are suggested. Expand
Mild cognitive impairment and cognitive reserve in Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
Empirical findings support the value of the concept of MCI in this population of Parkinson's disease patients without dementia, from the early untreated stages onwards and how CR modulates cognitive decline in PD and other frontal-subcortical disorders is investigated. Expand

TLDR
The main pathology seems to be Lewy-body-type degeneration with associated cellular and synaptic loss in cortical and limbic structures and Alzheimer's disease-type pathology is commonly associated with dementia but less predictive. Expand
Dementia and survival in Parkinson disease
TLDR
Dementia is a key part of survival in Parkinson disease and must be planned for in services for this condition according to Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders Third Edition, Revised criteria. Expand
Cognitive Predictors of Dementia in Parkinson’s Disease: A Community-Based, 4-Year Longitudinal Study
TLDR
It was concluded that poor performance on a test sensitive to executive dysfunction predicted later development of dementia in PD patients, and this finding may have important clinical implications as a marker of subsequentDevelopment of dementia. Expand
Prevalence and characteristics of dementia in Parkinson disease: an 8-year prospective study.
TLDR
Early hallucinations and akinetic-dominant PD were associated with an increased risk of dementia, and more than three quarters of this representative PD cohort developed dementia during the 8-year study period. Expand
Risk of dementia in Parkinson’s disease
TLDR
Patients with PD have an almost sixfold increased risk for becoming demented compared with subjects without PD. Expand
The frequency and associated risk factors for dementia in patients with Parkinson's disease.
TLDR
Patients with PD, especially those with severe extrapyramidal signs, have almost twice the risk for the development of dementia than do community-dwelling control subjects. Expand

TLDR
Dementia was found to be a significant predictor for institutional placement in the PD group, and this finding has significant implications for successful clinical management of this condition. Expand
A 10-year study of the incidence of and factors predicting dementia in Parkinson’s disease
TLDR
Dementia in PD is likely to reflect interaction of the neuropathology of the basal ganglia and age-related pathology, and the findings do not support the division of PD into early and late-onset cases. Expand
A longitudinal of Parkinson's disease: clinical and neuropsychological correlates of dementia
TLDR
The results show that the clinical features of Parkinson's disease and response to treatment are influenced by the age of onset of symptoms and by the presence of dementia. Expand
The effect of age of onset of PD on risk of dementia
TLDR
This study shows that the general effect of age, rather than AAO, is associated with incident dementia in subjects with PD, and there was no effect of AAO independent of age itself. Expand
