Abstract

In this chapter, we discuss the wide variety of patients who may attend a memory clinic or other health services presenting with memory symptoms but who do not have dementia. These diagnoses may include a wide range of neurologic and neuropsychiatric disorders; in this chapter we will focus on other causes of memory symptoms which may be labeled psychologic or functional, or be more obviously part of an established psychiatric disorder. We describe the differential categorization recently posited by Stone et al. (2015), and consider important aspects of assessment and management in these cases.
