Abstract: The number of older persons and individuals with cognitive impairment is expected to increase dramatically in most parts of the world. It is therefore important to learn more about disorders that affect cognition. Idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH) mainly occurs in older persons and symptoms include cognitive impairment, gait disturbance and urinary symptoms. The aim of this thesis was to examine various aspects regarding the epidemiology of iNPH. The sample comprised data from the... more
