Most if not all: Dementias affect entire brain functions in the end, but mainly affect some areas more than others. Alzheimer's the frontal, parietal, and temporal mainly. Fronto-temporal, the frontal and temporal areas. Diffuse lewy body disease, involves occipital lobe, basal ganglia, temporal and parietal areas. But all of these are disorders of misfolded proteins, and deplete multi-neurotransmitters.
