In brief: Parkinson's ?
Certain neurological diseases maybe associated with lack of facial expression or a "masked facies".
Parkinson's disease or lewy body disease may present witih masked facies and be associated with dementia, but a lack of expression alone is not enough to make an association with dementia.
