Spotlight on Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia

In support of World Mental Health Day we are focusing on Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia, the chronic neurodegenerative disease that knows no social, economic or ethnic boundaries. For years, teams of committed researchers have tried to understand what causes the disease and to find a cure but it still remains an enigma at large.

We have put together a free virtual issue on the disease comprising of key articles and chapters from across the Springer Nature Imprints and publications that explore the latest research on diagnosis, treatment and prevention by leveraging a variety of techniques and technologies including biomarkers, genetics and imaging.

The Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia virtual issue is freely available from 10th October to 10th November, 2018

In this virtual issue on Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia we provide access to over 25 articles and chapters from:

  • Nature journals
  • Springer journals
  • Springer eBooks
  • Springer Protocols
