Welcome to VasCog: The International Society of Vascular Behavioural and Cognitive Disorders
The society was founded to:
  • bring diverse scientific and clinical research interests together for the study of vascular causes of various brain disorders, and
  • serve as an organization for the dissemination of this information, patient advocacy and the training of researchers.
Interest in the vascular causes of various brain disorders including Alzheimer's disease, vascular dementia, mild cognitive impairment, depression, and other behavioural disorders has grown immensely over the last decade. Recent evidence suggests that these brain disorders may be delayed or even prevented by treatment of vascular risk factors such as hypertension and hypercholesterolemia. The potential implications of these findings span a diverse arena of both scientific and clinical interest and it is increasingly apparent that a forum for discussion and education on vascular causes of various brain disorders is needed. Such a forum should also develop research strategies to address key issues in cerebrovascular disorders.
