Special Issue "Early Recognition of Alzheimer´s Disease"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 December 2021.
Interests: brain aging; cohort studies; epidemiology; intelligence; childhood adversity
The discovery of a cholinergic deficit in Alzheimer's Disease has driven over 40 years of progress in understanding the neurobiology of clinical dementia syndromes. Landmark discoveries in neurogenetics, molecular neurobiology, and clinical neuropsychology have revealed new research questions. The early recognition of progress to dementia remains a critical limiting step in navigating ways towards new treatments, and the delay or even prevention of dementia onset. In this collection of invited papers, these questions and the implications of their possible answers are set out.
Pathways that lead to a better understanding of early Alzheimer’s Disease, that improve methods of early detection, clinical practice, and conduct of clinical trials will be considered in this Special Issue of Brain Sciences. We are looking forward to hearing from you soon.
