Most neurocognitive disorders manifest as a multifaceted phenotype. Both major and minor neurocognitive disorders are characterized by a triad of symptoms, including cognitive deficits (such as impaired memory, attention, and/or verbal fluency), neuropsychiatric symptoms, (an umbrella term encompassing symptoms like anxiety, depression, apathy, sleep disturbances, aggression, agitation, hallucinations, or delusions), and impaired activities of daily living.
