A 19-year-old male asked:

Is it possible to have dementia at 23? i scored very low on one cognitive test, however on other i score highly (especially memory tests). what is the likelyhood? also lets say you scored 1/8 on a memory screening test does that guarantee dementia?

No: You don't have dementia, don't try to self diagnose, those tests should be run by professionals who know how to interpret, wish you wellness
