Alzheimer’s Disease on the Internet

I’ve just been checking out Alzforum, a website about Alzheimer’s Research. This website is truly outstanding containing a number of incredibly useful resources. One really neat feature on this site is a weekly update of papers about dementia. At the time of writing, there were 134 papers for the week of 12-18th July 2008. The site also lists ARF recommended papers for further reading as well as a list of classic papers in the field. I got lost for a few hours in this site and have only managed to look at a fraction of its content.  Other really useful features include a database of genes implicated in dementia together with papers supporting their involvement and even a meta-analysis! There are pages dedicated to models of Alzheimer’s pathogenesis as well as current drugs under development, conferences and other pieces of relevant news. I would recommend this highly for people with an interest in dementia!
