The neurological conditions in which the Dementia occurs include some disorders like Parkinson's disease, Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus, Huntington's disease, and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD).

The genetic factors are responsible for the establishment of disorders like Parkinson’s disease, Down Syndrome, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus. The other factors for Dementia include physical factors like head injuries and Traumatic brain injuries.
