In brief: Yes and no.
Dementia can affect both gray matter (non-myelinated neurons) and white matter (myelinated neurons).
Many different disease processes affect both gray and white matter that do not result in a formal diagnosis of dementia.

In brief: Not exactly
Various types of dementia affects grey mater or white mater or both.
Depending on type of disease, reversibility, extent location may affect the intellect (dementia).
