Editorial on the Research Topic
Neuroscientific Research for Management of Dementia

Each system in our body is valuable for the unique function it carries out. The nervous system for example is easily the most complex system in the human species which is sophistically made up of neurons, synapses, and various important specialized cells for appropriate signaling of neuro- transmission. Overall role of CNS is to control whole body functions in a systematic mechanism. Any abnormalities in any part of neuro-mechanism result in physiological to psychological disorder/behaviors. Therefore, researchers and medical health care staff are driven to improve physical health as well as state of psychological health in term of close connection with the nervous and immune system. The purpose of this Research Topic of Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience was to shed light on the latest outstanding discoveries pertained in wide spectrum of aging neuroscience by covering different aspects of nervous system to dementia in their original research articles and reviews. Taking this into consideration, the Research Topic on Frontiers in Neuroscientific Research for Management of Dementia by Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience makes a contribution with updates and different perspective on this important theme, developed over 17 articles (Table 1).

We hope that this Frontiers Research Topic will be an enrichment for Neuroscientific Research for Management of Dementia, with the efforts and commitment of all authors to whom we give our acknowledgment as well as to the reviewers who have contributed in improving and clarifying these diverse contributions due to their valuable comments. Finally, a special thanks to Editor in Chief and Frontiers management team for support in publishing process.
