Ageing is considered to be the strongest risk factor for dementia. As the world population ages, the prevalence of dementia has increased to unprecedented levels. The dramatic increase in the incidence of dementia along with its significant socioeconomic implications have expedited research in this field. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) constitutes the number one cause of dementia and is a major focus of global research. Important developments in dementia and AD are constantly being reported and new promising treatments for AD are being evaluated.
The borders between health and disease become more and more vague with increasing chronological age. Cognitive decline tends to accompany normal ageing, while functional impairments and neuropsychiatric manifestations are strongly related to cognitive deficits during senescence. Cognitive impairment has serious individual and social ramifications in both dementia and the normal ageing process. Therefore, a growing body of research has focused on the efficacious management and prevention of cognitive decline in older adults without full-blown dementia.
This Special Issue aims to review the newest advancements in the fields of dementia and cognitive decline in older adults. All types of manuscripts, including original research articles, reviews, systematic reviews and meta-analyses pertaining to these topics are welcomed by the Journal.
