I'm revising dementias for paper 1 as they could come into assessment/ aetiology/ prevention and classification. I guess they could also come into cognitive assessment.

Better to be safe then sorry!

It may also come in under the neuroanatomy heading - gross vs microscopic changes seen in the various dementias and other brain diseases.

Thanks for that.Yeah , i ve covered them in respect of classification needs, but certainly not in respect of neuroanatomy...

Would presume that neuropathology comes under the banner of paper 2 exclusively...?
