Patients will be screened by questioning them and their caregiver and from the results of the clinical examination and the biological and neuroradiological tests habitually carried out in cases of dementia and following accepted procedures.
- Behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD) [ Time Frame: 18 months ]To measure (at inclusion, and at 6, 12, 18 months) the effect of premorbid personality and life events on the likelihood of a patient with probable Alzheimer's disease being affected by each of the BPSD categories: hyperactivity, psychotic symptoms, mood symptoms and apathy.
- social cognition tests [ Time Frame: during the inclusion visit ]To evaluate, at the time of inclusion, the connection between the basic personality and the performance in social cognition tests (capacity to interact with others)
- connection between social cognitive tests and BPSD [ Time Frame: 18 months ]To evaluate (at inclusion and after 6, 12, 18 months) the connection between the performance of the social cognitive tests at the time of inclusion and the risks of occurrence of BPSD.
- connection between cerebral atrophy and BPSD [ Time Frame: 18 months ]To evaluate the connection between the distribution of regional cerebral atrophy, determined by a MRI at the time of inclusion, and the risk of subsequent BPSD.
