This book chapter advances SDG #3 and #10 by reviewing several key topics that influence our understanding of pathogenic mechanisms and lead to the identification of novel therapeutic strategies. These include the diagnostic spectrum of MCI and AD, genetic risk alleles associated with late-onset AD, structures of gamma-secretase and tau, imaging and fluid biomarkers, the role of microglia and neuroinflammation, and novel animal models of AD.
This book chapter advances SDG #3 and #10 by presenting drug delivery systems based on nanotechnology to treat Alzheimer’s disease.
This book chapter advances SDG #3 and #10 by highlighting a few newly updated nano drug delivery technologies implemented in Alzheimer’s disease therapies and prospects for the future regarding potential molecular mechanisms of nano drug delivery methods
This book chapter advances SDG #3 and #10 by reviewing studies that showed treatments with multiple sessions of rTMS can influence cognition in people with neurodegenerative diseases. The chapter also considers novel therapeutic approaches based on the clinical use of rTMS.
This book chapter advances SDG 3 and 10 by presenting that (1) some of these depression scales do not correlate, suggesting that they assess different aspects of depression; (2) reports of depression in dementia vary based on depression in dementia scale used; and (3) severe memory impairment may impact the ability to assess depression in the patients using self-reports.
Efficient resource management and the development of resilient societies begins with an accurate identification of strengths and weaknesses of systems involved. Conducting a holistic performance analysis considering multiple assessment criteria permits the detection of discrepancies hindering systems productivity. In this study, an integrative assessment tool, based on the analytical hierarchy process (AHP) and the energy, water, and food (EWF) nexus is used to design a decision-making scheme that guides policymakers in establishing national priorities and sectorial strategies.

Energy Strategy Reviews, Volume 38, November 2021

Climate change mitigation requires energy transition supported by public to maximize policy acceptance. We examine if transiency of residence and life satisfaction affect climate change perceptions and opinions on energy sources. We find that transiency of residence and life satisfaction have significant effect in shaping views towards climate change. Results indicate that individuals concerned about local impact of climate change are supportive of renewable energy sources.
