Dahlem Workshop Reports Etiology of Dementia of Alzheimer’s Type A. S. Henderson J. H. Henderson Editors Alzheimer’s disease represents one of the largest categories of chronic disability in the elderly throughout the world. This book is a timely and needed publication, exploring current research and the emerging prospects for discovering the causes of dementia of Alzheimer’s type. In the traditions of Dahlem Konferenzen, experts from epidemiology, neurophysiology, neuropsychology, neuropathology, neurochemistry, clinical psychiatry, clinical neurology and molecular biology shared their knowledge, their research findings and their thoughts on directions for future work. In particular, they decided what the most important questions for scientific progress in this field are. The selection of papers come from eminent and respected scientists and clinicians. The discussion reports, each from a multidisciplinary group, focus on specific topics: epidemiology and environmental factors, symptomatology, genetic and molecular biology, and the relation between dementing diseases of aging and the ‘normal’ process of aging. This book provides a wealth of material that encourages optimism for the future of research in these areas.
