To reduce the impact of dementia, Nahuel believes it is necessary to make people aware of the disease and its possible prevention, while progress is being made in investigating new treatments and methods that allow for an earlier diagnosis.


Nahuel is creating a frontotemporal dementia unit to care for people suffering from this illness, investigating new diagnostic methods, and educating other professionals on how to correctly identify and diagnose this disease as it's frequently misdiagnosed as a psychiatric disease.


In Argentina, knowledge about frontotemporal dementia is limited and often misdiagnosed. As an Atlantic Fellow, Nahuel hopes to advance in the development of tools that allow us to diagnose this pathology earlier.


In Argentina, people with dementia are often diagnosed late, which limits access to treatment. This delay worsens the quality of life of patients and their families, leading to a deterioration of social and emotional ties and a tremendous economic impact.
