Alzheimer's Disease & Other Dementias Special Topic Hub

SSRN’s Alzheimer’s Disease & Other Dementias Hub highlights early-stage research focusing on these disorders which affect the brain and impact memory, thinking, behavior, and emotion. An estimated 50+ million people around the world currently live with Alzheimer's disease or another dementia, with a new case arising around the world every three seconds. For many, there remains little understanding of dementia, and stigmatization and misinformation surrounding the disease is a global issue. This hub presents curated insights from many disciplines that will inform the ongoing conversation about Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

For 2023 World Alzheimer’s Day, organized annually by Alzheimer’s Disease International, the theme Never too early, never too late focuses on risk factors and risk reduction, emphasizing their crucial role in potentially delaying or even preventing the onset of dementia. The aim of this international campaign is to encourage early intervention, healthy lifestyle choices, and regular monitoring of cognitive health as preventative measures.

SSRN, Elsevier’s world-leading platform devoted to the rapid worldwide dissemination of early-stage research, is committed to advancing societal progress through sharing quality knowledge. Research on SSRN is free to download and upload.

It is important to note that many of these papers have not been edited or benefited from the pivotal role of peer-review, which validates and improves the quality of final published journal articles.
