This book chapter advances SDG #3 and #10 by providing therapeutic strategies that can be employed in clinical trials for AD in DS will be discussed as well as their underlying scientific rationale.
This book chapter advances SDG #3 and #10 by reviewing the observed epidemiological links between normal and abnormal diurnal and seasonal rhythmicity, cognitive impairment, and ADRD. Then reviewing normal diurnal and seasonal rhythms of brain epigenetic modification and gene expression in model organisms. Finally, reviewing evidence for diurnal and seasonal rhythms of epigenetic modification and gene expression the human brain in aging, Alzheimer's disease, and other brain disorders.
This book chapter advances SDG #3 and #10 by providing a brief history of PET imaging and the radiotracers that have had a significant impact for measuring the three signature AD-related neuropathologies related to AD and provides an overview of the research utilizing PET imaging in the DS population
This book chapter advances SDG #3 and #10 by discussing the advantages of performing genetic studies in people with DS, and then discussing the role of reported genes that are known to be associated with AD risk in adults with DS or in the general population. It also discusses how future longitudinal multiomic and imaging study can enhance our understanding of the biology of AD.
