  • To compare the clinical features of dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) and Parkinson's disease dementia (PDD), with a focus on diagnostic issues
  • To compare the cognitive profile of DLB, PDD and Alzheimer’s disease
  • To understand the underlying brain changes of DLB and PDD
  • To understand the multi-factorial approach to management of DLB and PDD
