Institute Presentation

Our Department is the 3rd University Department of Neurology of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. Since 1988 we are examining patients with cognitive disorders and since 1992 we have an outpatient clinic for patients with dementia. We have participated in 30 clinical studies, the vast majority of them are international. Our team took part in many European projects such as ICTUS, DESCRIPA, EDAR, SHARE, INNOMED, American project MIRAGE. There are physicians, neuropsychologists and social workers  who are working in collaboration with our Department in every day clinical praxis. The main work they do is the assessment of patients with cognitive problems and pharmacological and non pharmacological interventions in day centres which are funded by Ministry of Health.

We have used the vast majority of the scales which are used in clinical trials, we are doing  lumbure punctures  and examine the CSF, we have a genetic lab where we examine APOE and other polymorphisms which are related with AD. We are doing event related potentials and EEG for patients with cognitive disorders and we have organized non- pharmacological interventions such as cognitive an physical exercises with or without new technologies.

Also we try to organise the same structure in different other cities all over Greece and the result is that the University of Athens  will take part with us in the new project BIOMARK APD under the umbrella of JPND.
