Cognitive health refers to the health of the brain and its function wholly and solely. This deal with several types of functions such as: memory, judgment, intuition. In short, if cognitive disorders are there, it can take many forms. One of the common cognitive health related problems is a decrease in mental function, dementia, which generally develops in the later phase of life. Cognitive health decline naturally occurs while ageing but it is age-independent and can be found in any age group. Even, other health problems that are not age related also fall under the umbrella of cognitive issues. Like; depression is not necessarily age- related, same with brain injury or vitamin B12 deficiency.

As such there are no proper cures for neurocognitive disorder or the disease that cause it. Though several drugs like antidepressants, antipsychotics and others that treat memory loss and other behavioural symptoms, may help to treat the disease. But these are not proper solutions, instead, they just suppress the symptoms and their effects. Newly developed mental exercise such as “computerized brain training programs” can help to maintain target specific regions of the brain. Diseases like amnesia if caused by underlying cause like; infections, the cause may be diagnosed but not amnesia. Majorly diseases related to cognition if are mild can be diagnosed by several approaches instead of medication only.

The cognitive neural network is complex network architecture with the group of several neurons underlying cognition. This also involves a study of thought pattern recognition, information processing, data collection and feedback mechanism. This study is used to explain the artificial intelligence hypothesis which is an electronic mimic along with computational tool application of the human neural network system (Central Nervous System). The original goal of the Artificial Neural Network was to come up with the solution of a problem in the way the human brain would. The main component of this system is the central executive, is a supervising system which regulates the other components of working memory.

Geriatric Neurology is the branch of medicine, deals with the study of neurologic disorders occurring in elderly. Geriatrics is concerned with treating and diagnosing the illness that occurs in adults, usually over the age of 60. Accurate diagnosis of neurological disorders in older adults can be difficult because the signs of the disease may mimic normal signs of ageing. Patients frequently have more than a neurologic disease which makes it more difficult to find the best treatment in that case. Ageing also brings slight memory loss which is normal until and unless it intervenes in daily activities. Memory loss range from treatable conditions such as depression, vitamin B12 deficiency, to more severe dementia and sleep disorders.

Loss of intellectual functions such as thinking, remembering, and reasoning occurs in cognitive dysfunction. Cognitive function is also known as brain fog. The people suffering from the same loses concentration power and face trouble with verbal recall. According to Marshall Pathogenesis, microbes are the causative agents of cognitive dysfunction. Moreover, diseases like Alzheimer’s disease are the severe forms of cognitive dysfunction. For elderly cancer patients, cognitive dysfunction has many applications. A patient suffering from this needs special hospitality and special care planning than that of normal patients. Not all patients suffering from cognitive dysfunction in depression, and not all people with depression suffer from the cognitive function.

Any disorder related to the nervous system comes under the category of neurological disorders. Although both brain and spinal cord are surrounded by tough membranes, by bones of the skull and spinal vertebrae and also isolated by the blood-brain barrier. Involvement for neurological disorders includes preventative measure such as lifestyle changes, physiotherapy, operations, medication and neurorehabilitation. Neurological problem’s specific causes vary but genetic disorders, infections, congenital abnormalities and brain injury including malnutrition, spinal cord or nerve injury. Millions of people are affected by neurological disorders; more than 6 million people die each year because of stroke, over 80% of these deaths take place in developed and developing countries.

Cognitive development includes study in neuroscience and psychology which is concerned with child’s development in terms of perceptual skill, conceptual resources and several other aspects of the developed adult brain. From the point of view with respect to the adult, cognitive development can also be called as intellectual development. Earlier it was believed that infants remain without cognition until they learned the language, but soon after cognitive development study, it was proved that infants are aware of the surroundings and explore since birth. Cognition development depends on cognition which itself is an action of learning. Cognition phenomenon varies person by person because of factors like how the person receives, thinks the process and gains an understanding of the world by their own interaction towards it.

Neurogenetics is the study of the role of genetics in the function and development of the nervous system. This draws aspects from both neuroscience and genetics but particularly it focusses on how the genetic code carried by an organism express its characteristics in terms of neurology. This is very helpful in finding the genetic base of several neural disorders. The genetic behind complex neurological disorders are the source of ongoing research, but the genetic basis of simple diseases and neurological disorders has been accurately pinpointed. One of the most important factors that drag researchers for the study continuation in neurogenetics is greater knowledge of gene loci that represents linkage of genetics to neurological disorders.

Cognitive genomics is the sub-branch of genomics-related to the cognitive function of the brain in which the genes and other non-coding sequences related to the health and neural activity is studied. This makes a relative bridge in between the cognition-action study and genetic study to find the mutualistic relationship in between the both. The cognitive genomic study can undoubtedly drive us to our future evolution as a species. Although both cognition (can also be called as brain action) and genetics are full of complications and the brain, genetics and human experience will result in putting forward more complicate aspects than it may now seem. Scientists and researcher’s study towards cognitive genomics will surely help us to reach genetic brain optimization and overcome genetic brain disorders.

Cognitive Psychology is the scientific study of mind as information processor. It involves the study of all the things that go on inside your brain. Knowing more about how people think and process the data not only help researchers to gain deeper understanding of how the human brain works, but it allows psychologists to develop new ways of serving people dealing with cognitive psychological difficulties. Cognitive psychology has also improved our understanding of how people form, store, process and recall the memories. Meanwhile the emphasis of psychology shifted away from the study of conditioned behavior and psychoanalytical notions about the study of the mind, towards the understanding of human information processing, using laboratory investigation. Cognitive approach believes that internal mental behavior can be scientifically studied using experiments. Cognitive psychology assumes that a mediation process occurs between stimulus (input) and response (output). Computer analogy is also proved to be very useful in case of cognitive psychology-the use of the computational tools for thinking how the human mind handles information is known as the computer analogy. Essentially, computer codes information, stores information, utilize the acquired information, and produce an output. Such idea of using computer as a tool was adopted by cognitive psychologists as a model of how human thoughts work.
