An estimated 47 million people worldwide are living with dementia in 2015, and this number is projected to triple by 2050. In the absence of a disease-modifying treatment or cure, reducing the risk of developing dementia takes on added importance. In 2014, the World Dementia Council (WDC) requested the Alzheimer's Association evaluate and report on the(More)
To address the pending public health crisis due to Alzheimer's disease (AD) and related neurodegenerative disorders, the Marian S. Ware Alzheimer Program at the University of Pennsylvania held a meeting entitled "State of the Science Conference on the Advancement of Alzheimer's Diagnosis, Treatment and Care," on June 21-22, 2012. The meeting comprised four(More)
The objective of this paper is to understand how the public's beliefs in five countries may change as more families have direct experience with Alzheimer's disease. The data are derived from a questionnaire survey conducted by telephone (landline and cell) with 2678 randomly selected adults in France, Germany, Poland, Spain, and the United States. The paper(More)
As the world's population ages, countries must prepare for the significant impact Alzheimer's disease will have on their health systems, their economies, and their citizens. In anticipation of major global demographic changes, many countries in the G-20 since 2000 have begun to develop and enact plans to address Alzheimer's disease as a national priority.(More)
Abstract— Web-winding systems such as tape drives are often modeled as linear and time-invariant (LTI), but at least two nonlinearities are common in these systems. First, the reel radii and moments of inertia change as web media spools from one reel to another. Second, friction can draw a thin layer of air between the layers of web media wrapped on the(More)
Infant research addresses the question of how subjective structures are objectively established during early development and what biological and psychological preconditions must be met. By contrast, psychoanalytic-developmental research explores how the child processes what it experiences within its relationships. Despite these differences in topic and(More)
Web-winding systems, such as tape drives, are often modeled as linear and timeinvariant, but at least two nonlinearities are common in these systems. First, the reel radii and moments of inertia change as web media spools from one reel to another. Second, friction can draw a thin layer of air between the layers of web media wrapped on the take-up reel,(More)
Solubilization isotherms for various phenols in cetylpyridinium chloride (CPC)-polyelectrolyte gel aggregates have been determined in order to compare solubilization within these aggregates with that in free micelles and to examine the effects of gel chemistry and structure on solubilization. The isotherms describing solubilization are quite similar to(More)
