Il processo di invecchiamento e caratterizzato da una serie di modificazioni fisiologiche e le conseguenze di queste possono essere sia neurologiche sia psicologiche. Il deterioramento della funzione mnesica e comunemente associato alla produzione di false memorie, confabulazioni e deliri. Tuttavia se i deliri risultano essere in letteratura gia piuttosto ben definiti e circoscritti, le confabulazioni rappresentano ancora un argomento complesso e di difficile definizione. In questo articolo si vuole porre l’attenzione sui recenti studi sui temi della confabulazioni, del delirio e delle patologie che in eta senile possono determinare tali disturbi.
