In brief: Can include more but
The symptoms include significant difficulty learning new information or recalling previously learned information.
In addition, they can have problems with language, problems moving, difficulty recognizing or naming objects, and all sorts of problems with what is called "executive functioning" (planning, organizing, etc.). All these changes represent a big decline from previous functioning.
