  1. A neurologist's perspective on the aging brain : The aging brain : Limitations in our knowledge and future approache.

    Article - En anglais

    I have worked as a neurologist in old age homes and chronic hospitals for 30 years, and over this period I have seen thousands of older patients with dementias and other degenerative neurological syndromes.

    A high proportion of these patients have steadily and sometimes rapidly advancing dementias of the type we now tend to call Alzheimer disease (AD)

    (although this term was used in a much narrower sense when I started seeing such patients in the mid-sixties).
