This is a neurologic condition that can cause:

problems with cognition
psychiatric symptoms

And the treatment is basically directed at the symptoms of the disease.

For example a stroke is treated in the same manner as any stroke would be treated -- depression would be treated with antidepressants, migraines with migraine medication.

But unfortunately, there is no medication or surgery or therapy that can help to "prevent" or "delay" the disease.
