Dementia is a massive illness that turns into more and more universal with advancing age. regardless of contemporary development in neurobiology and molecular genetics, the aetiology and pathogenesis of so much dementia problems are nonetheless poorly understood, and early precise prognosis as a prerequisite of potent therapy has to be more suitable. the current quantity contains the contributions of well known specialists within the box of neurodegeneration awarded on the foreign Symposium "Ageing and Dementia 1999”, September 24–26, 1999 at Graz. It focusses on genetics, epidemiology, new neuroimaging strategies, and the position of vascular, immunological and different mechanisms together with oxidative rigidity and estrogens within the improvement of neurodegeneration and dementia. contemporary advancements in prognosis and remedy of Alzheimer illness and similar issues are reviewed and destiny healing methods are mentioned. hence, this quantity presents a well timed assessment of latest advancements in dementia examine and therapy suggestions of dementia disorders.

Furthermore, VaD may be overdiagnosed, as evidence of cerebrovascular disease does not necessarily mean that it caused the dementia. However, VaD may also be underdiagnosed as many infarctions are clinically silent. Furthermore, Vascular aspects in Alzheimer's disease 39 many infarcts are not detectable by CT of the brain. Finally, cerebral areas can be damaged and non-functional although brain imaging remains normal. Even the histopathologic diagnosis of AD and VaD is uncertain. , 1999). Similar findings relate to the neuropathological diagnosis of VaD.

Thus, pathophysiology of VaD incorporates interactions between vascular aetiologies (cerebrovascular disorders and vascular risk-factors), changes in the brain (infarcts, WMLs, atrophy), host factors (age, education) and cognition (Tatemichi, 1990; Chui, 1989; Desmond, 1996; Pasquier and Leys, 1997; Skoog, 1998). An understanding of the relationship between vascular factors and cognition is vital. Do the identified vascular factors cause, compound or only coexist with the VaD syndrome?
