He pretty much went as in depth as one can go when it comes to cadences. There's nothing more anyone can really add.

There's two more cadences that I can think of, and one of them is the deceptive cadence.
The Deceptive Cadence is V- ?. The piece builds up to the V, then when the ear expects to hear the I, it instead goes to another chord, most of the time that chord being a vi.

The other cadence is the leading-tone Imperfect Authentic Cadence. What this is, it's an inverted V7 to I. The other way this can be accomplished is a vii (dim) to I.
Db Dim 7 b9
So that would be...Db Fb Abb Cbb Ebb.
Fuckin' crazy...
