Decadal surveys are unique Academies endeavors that aim to set research agendas for the next decade on topics of significant national interest; submitting a white paper is a key way to inform this particular survey at its earliest stages.

The researchers also discussed the importance of more epidemiological, clinical, neuroimaging and genetic studies to better characterize LATE, and the need for research in diverse populations.Rather, LATE dementia is caused by deposits of a protein called TDP-43 in the brain," said Dr.Julie Schneider, senior author of the paper and associate director of the Rush Alzheimer's Disease Center.More The National Academy of Sciences Board on Children, Youth, and Families (BCYF) has released a report of a consensus study on reducing child poverty in the United States, thanks in part to key leadership by psychological scientists.Current Alzheimer's treatments temporarily improve symptoms of memory loss and problems with thinking and reasoning.A growing understanding of how the disease disrupts the brain has led to potential Alzheimer's treatments that short-circuit basic disease processes.Future Alzheimer's treatments may include a combination of medications, similar to how treatments for many cancers or HIV/AIDS include more than a single drug.'Oldest old' are at greatest risk of LATE It has become increasingly clear that in advanced age, a large number of people had symptoms of dementia without the telltale signs of Alzheimer's disease in their brains at autopsy.Emerging research seems to indicate that TDP-43, while not a stand-alone explanation, is a large contributor to that phenomenon.As more cells die, Alzheimer's disease continues to progress.Experts are cautiously hopeful about developing Alzheimer's treatments that can stop or significantly delay the progression of Alzheimer's.
