Toward defining the preclinical stages of Alzheimer’s disease: Recommendations from the National Institute on Aging-Alzheimer's Association workgroups on diagnostic guidelines for Alzheimer's disease
The projected effect of risk factor reduction on Alzheimer's disease prevalence

The efficacy of a novel brain plasticity–based computerized cognitive training program in older adults and the effect on untrained measures of memory and attention and participant‐reported outcomes are evaluated.
Potential for primary prevention of Alzheimer's disease: an analysis of population-based data
Toward defining the preclinical stages of Alzheimer's disease: Recommendations from the National Institute on Aging and the Alzheimer's Association workgroup
The pathophysiological process of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is thought to begin many years before the diagnosis of AD dementia. This long “preclinical” phase of AD would provide a critical opportunity…

Using ERC and hippocampus together improved discrimination between AD and CN but did not improve discrimination between MCI and NC; the ERC was better than the hippocampus for distinguishing MCI from AD.

Obesity in middle age increases the risk of future dementia independently of comorbid conditions.
Diffusion tensor imaging of cingulum fibers in mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer disease
Assessment of the cingulum fibers using diffusion tensor imaging may aid early diagnosis of Alzheimer disease.
The metabolic syndrome, inflammation, and risk of cognitive decline.
Findings support the hypothesis that the metabolic syndrome contributes to cognitive impairment in elders, but primarily in those with high level of inflammation.
Pharmacological treatment of neuropsychiatric symptoms of dementia: a review of the evidence.
Of the agents reviewed, the atypical antipsychotics risperidone and olanzapine currently have the best evidence for efficacy, however, the effects are modest and further complicated by an increased risk of stroke.
