Abstract

Dementia is a progressive neurodegenerative disease, of which Alzheimers disease (AD) is the most frequent cause. AD is characterized by the progressive formation of insoluble amyloid plaques and vascular deposits of amyloid beta peptide in the brain. AD patients suffer from a loss of neurons and synapses in the cerebral cortex and certain sub-cortical regions. Early Detection and Rehabilitation Technologies for Dementia: Neuroscience and Biomedical Applications provides a comprehensive collection for experts in the Neuroscience and Biomedical technology fields. Outlining various concepts from cognitive neuroscience and dementia to neural technology and rehabilitation; this book proves to bring together researchers and practitioners from diverse fields, in order to promote scientific research and industrial development in the field of early detection and rehabilitation technology of dementia.
