Cerebral Vascular Atrophy

Cerebral atrophy refers to the progressive loss of brain cells over time. Atrophy refers to a decreased size or wasting away of any part of the body. Cerebral atrophy can happen in either the entire brain or in just one part of the brain and can lead to decreased brain mass and loss of neurological function. Many diseases that cause cerebral atrophy are associated with dementia, seizures, and a group of language disorders called the aphasias.
