By D. Inzitari, G. Carlucci, Leonardo Pantoni MD. PhD (auth.), Prof. Dr. K. Jellinger, Prof. Dr. R. Schmidt, Dr. M. Windisch (eds.)

Dementia is a massive illness that turns into more and more universal with advancing age. regardless of fresh growth in neurobiology and molecular genetics, the aetiology and pathogenesis of so much dementia problems are nonetheless poorly understood, and early distinct analysis as a prerequisite of potent remedy has to be more desirable. the current quantity contains the contributions of popular specialists within the box of neurodegeneration awarded on the overseas Symposium "Ageing and Dementia 1999”, September 24–26, 1999 at Graz. It focusses on genetics, epidemiology, new neuroimaging options, and the function of vascular, immunological and different mechanisms together with oxidative pressure and estrogens within the improvement of neurodegeneration and dementia. contemporary advancements in prognosis and remedy of Alzheimer illness and similar problems are reviewed and destiny healing methods are mentioned. therefore, this quantity presents a well timed evaluation of most modern advancements in dementia examine and remedy suggestions of dementia disorders.
