Lots of unusual side effects, having to do with brain short circuits... popping up long forgotten life events, based on tiny stimulus bits... words, pictures, and really strange.. music.
ke some time, and hoping that it will be more like a decade, than a year or two.
All that sounds normal to me.

Some of this testing can be done by a neuro-psychologist.

Once something like any type of dementia is setting in, many individuals have little insight into their own deficits as the deficits progress. They will believe that there is nothing wrong with them beyond, perhaps, the aggravation of a little short-term memory loss.

It will help you to know the results of your loved one's testing, but for some types of dementia, your loved one may discount, disbelieve, or revise the conclusions.
