With recent advances of modern medicine, more people reach the “elderly age” around the globe, and the number of dementia cases are ever increasing. This book is about various aspects of dementia and provides its readers with a wide range of thought-provoking sub-topics in the field of dementia. The ultimate goal of this monograph is to stimulate other physicians’ and neuroscientists’ interest to carry out more research projects into the pathogenesis of this devastating group of diseases.
