Some people with dementia can not control their feelings and their individualities may change. Certain types of dementia can cause troubles with equilibrium and movement. As many as fifty percent of all people age 85 or older might have dementia. Not everyone develops dementia as they age, and, in unusual cases, some people develop dementia in midlife. Dementia is the result of changes in the brain that cause nerve cells, or neurons, to quit working correctly and at some point die. Researchers have linked changes in the brain to certain forms of dementia, yet most of the times the specific brain changes that cause dementia are unknown.
