Alzheimer’s & Dementia: DADM concentrates on the discovery, development, and validation of assays, instruments, and technologies with the potential to facilitate accurate detection of dementia in its various forms and stages. Articles cover a range of topics focused on the early and accurate identification of people at elevated risk of various forms of memory disorders, including individuals who are asymptomatic and those with memory complaints. Promising dementia biomarkers, ranging from gene expression and proteomic markers, to imaging, cognitive and functional markers of disease progression or treatment response are of particular interest.
