Purpose of reviewRecent work has revealed the impact of deficits of attention on patients with neurological disorders. Here we discuss therapeutic interventions that have been used across a range of conditions, highlighting common themes both in the nature of the attention deficits and the strategies employed to treat them. Recent findingsCholinesterase inhibitors improve attention, as well as memory, in several conditions including cortical Lewy body disease, Parkinson's disease dementia… Expand
