Vas-Cog: The International Society of Vascular Behavioral and Cognitive Disorders was founded to bring diverse scientific and clinical research interests together, and serve as an organization for the dissemination of information, patient advocacy and the training of researchers through biennial international congresses and focused workshops.
Areas of interest include the vascular causes of various brain disorders including Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, vascular cognitive impairment, depression, and other behavioral disorders. For these brain disorders the interest has grown immensely over the last decade, and recent evidence suggests that onset 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
The mission of the Vas-Cog Society is to investigate vascular factors related to brain injury and dysfunction through their manifold causes and presentations and to strive for consensus on vascular involvement in psychiatric, psychological, cognitive, behavioral, and functional symptoms.
The vision of the Vas-Cog Society is to encourage worldwide representation, involve a multidisciplinary approach, stimulate research and debate, encourage integration and participation of young researchers, disseminate and translate results to clinical practice, advance public education and awareness, and develop liaison with caregivers.
