This publication is a landmark work commemorating the centennial of
Alois Alzheimer's discovery of what would be known as Alzheimer's
disease (AD). The centennial of Alois Alzheimer's original
description of the disease that would come to bear his name offers
a vantage point from which to commemorate the seminal discoveries
in the field. It traces how the true importance of AD as the major
cause of late life dementia ultimately came to light and narrates
the evolution of the concepts related to AD throughut the years and
its recognition as a major public health problem, with an estimated
30-40 million people affected by AD today. To identify the
breakthroughs, the editors have used citation analysis, landmark
papers identified by current researchers, and rew upon their own
experience and insights. This process took into account the
perspectives of individuals who recall the impact of findings at
the time they were made, as well as of scientists today who have
the advantage of hindsight in weighing the lasing influence of
these findings. Because modern AD research was triggered by the
seminal work of Tomlinson, Blessed, and Roth some four decades ago,
it is particularly fortunate that the vast majority of these
milestone authors are still with us.
