Contemporary approaches to Alzheimer's disease and frontotemporal dementia

Academic Article


  • Alzheimer's disease and frontotemporal dementia are two of the most common neurodegenerative dementias. Here, we review the clinical presentation, genetic causes, typical neuropathology, and current treatments for these disorders. We then review molecules involved in their pathogenesis and protocols for working with these species and conclude with a discussion of experimental systems and outcome measures for studying these disorders. © 2011 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
