Behavioural and Cognitive Effects of Cerebrovascular Diseases

Description

Cerebrovascular diseases encompass a wide range of conditions that interfere with normal cerebral circulation mostly by causing changes in the integrity of relevant blood vessels, blood components, and hemodynamics. They include several subclinical and clinically significant causes of vascular brain injuries including intracranial atherosclerosis, aneurysms, vasculitis, vascular spasm, vascular malformations, chronic cerebral hypoperfusion, infarction, and haemorrhages.

These conditions are associated with high disease burden worldwide and are now among the leading causes of disease in low and middle income countries (LMICs) undergoing epidemiologic transition. Recent advances in the management of cerebrovascular diseases have led to reduction in mortality rates. The impact of the progress made in reducing mortality on behavioural and cognitive outcome of medium to long-term survivors remains unclear.

Clinicians and researchers are invited to submit original articles and in-depth reviews that will provide new insight into the behavioural and cognitive sequelae of cerebrovascular disorders. Examples of such sequelae include mood disorders, cognitive impairments, and dementia. Articles could examine risk factors, pathophysiology, manifestations, investigations, interventions, and rehabilitation of any of the relevant topics.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Transient ischemic attack
  • Stroke
  • Vascular dementia (including strategic infarcts, multi-infarct dementia, and Binswanger’s disease)
  • Hypertensive encephalopathies
  • Chronic subdural haematoma
  • Intracranial/ cerebral atherosclerosis
  • Cerebral vascular malformation
  • Cerebral vasculitis
