Dementia research is drawing increasingly more attention and funds. Scientists are searching for causes underlying dementia diseases and neural processes that lead to them to find one day a medication that would cure Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia and many other neurodegenerative diseases. Nowadays we are already able to track some biomarkers very early in the disease progression. What if we could stop Alzheimer’s or Huntington’s disease before the symptoms occur? What if we could reverse the brain damage? What if we could prevent people from developing dementia? Those questions among other lead the researchers on their way to a future without dementia.
Here you will find information on ongoing projects and recent findings in dementia research as well as reports on the current state of dementia care.
