The combination of acute and chronic organic reactions is of course much more common than would be predicted by their chance co-occurrence. Delirium superimposed on dementia is a common clinical problem and is recognised in international disease classificatory systems. Indeed, a dementing condition may be exposed for the first time by the superimposition of delirium following a relatively minor metabolic or toxic insult, due to the unnoticed loss of some theoretical cerebral ‘reserve’. Other general psychiatric disorders when they occur in the setting of organic brain disease may be classified separately in the ICD and DSM schemes from their ‘idiopathic’, ‘non-organic’ counterparts.

Accordingly, the immediate memory span for digits or similar material (working memory) is found to be reduced. Defective retention leads to difficulty with new learning and this is a sensitive clinical indicator in mild stages of disorder. Recent (episodic) memories prove to be faulty while long-term memories are reasonably intact, though with moderate impairment of consciousness both are found to suffer. An early change is defective appreciation of the flow of time, and the jumbling of time sequences for recent events.
