Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Our knowledge on neurodegenerative disorders is rapidly expanding. Molecular, neuropsychological and imaging markers are valuable tools for understanding the various mechanisms underlying these disorders. In addition, such biomarkers may be of clinical value, and some of them have been incorporated in diagnostic criteria and guidelines for neurodegenerative disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease. This Special Issue provides insights into the use of biomarkers in neurodegenerative disorders, including (but not limited to) Alzheimer’s disease, frontotemporal dementias, Lewy body dementia, Parkinson’s disease, atypical parkinsonian disorders and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Among others, fluid biomarkers (cerebrospinal fluid or blood), structural imaging biomarkers (atrophy), positron emission tomography (PET) biomarkers (amyloid- and/or tau-PET and others), neuropsychological testing and genetic biomarkers are especially important. Original research, review and case report papers are all acceptable. Papers on biomarkers related to basic mechanisms are welcome, but the main interest is on clinically meaningful biomarkers, their help in the (differential) diagnosis of patients with cognitive and movement disorders, and in selecting patients for newer or emerging treatments.
