Dementia and Neurodegenerative Diseases aims to publish significant clinical and translational research findings on all aspects of neurodegenerative diseases.
*For the submission of a Case Report please, send the manuscript draft to email@example.com for pre-evaluation. Any Case Reports submitted without a previous enquiry might experience delays, as they will be sent for assessment prior to peer review.
The rate of dementia due to neurodegenerative disease is rising sharply. More than 48 million people around the world are already affected, and this number is expected to double every 20 years, reaching 131 million in 2050. Caring for people with dementia and neurodegenerative diseases presents profound emotional, physical, and financial challenges to families and societies. While there are some palliative treatments for the symptoms of dementia, there are no known disease-modifying treatments for neurodegenerative diseases.
Dementia and Neurodegenerative Diseases is a specialty section of Frontiers in Neurology that aims to publish significant clinical and translational research findings on all aspects of neurodegenerative diseases. We welcome papers on cognitive, behavioral, and motor features of the neurodegenerative diseases, molecular insights into pathological prediction and disease mechanism, biomarkers for diagnosis and progression, potential therapeutics and clinical trials, or the relation between inflammation and neurodegeneration. Other important areas will be prevention and healthy aging and the model care of people with neurodegenerative diseases. Studies that create translational links between basic and clinical research will be particularly valued.
