Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy (CAA) is characterised mainly by impaired perceptual speed, episodic memory, semantic memory, attention and executive function. It has much in common with global cognitive impairment, and diagnosis may overlap with that for Alzheimer’s Disease or other forms of dementia. Other characteristics may include impulsivity, personality change .and depression. The authors consider the possibilities of devising a neuropsychological profile for CAA.
