Please consult a psychiatrist & also take an opinion from a neurologist. What mri suggests is changes in brain ... related to dementia. In dementia you can have lot of behaviour changes. And definitely can exacerbate the existing psychiatric illness.

Does he suffer from any medical issues like Diabetes,Hypertension ? Did he had any stroke in the past. We need to correlate symptoms with MRI Some chronic psychiatric conditions can present with above brain changes which could have been further exaggerated by acute event Please elaborate on symptoms
