    Abstract : Dementia is a state of permanent loss of cognitive function, most commonly affecting the elderly. With a rapidly growing aged population, the spectrum of disorders that lead to dementia is exerting an ever-increasing toll on patients, families and society alike. The most common dementing disorders are Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia. READ MORE

    Abstract : Traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries are important causes of premature death and permanentdisability. To improve the treatment of CNS-injured patients increased knowledge about thepathophysiological events that mediate death or dysfunction of nervous tissue is urgently needed. READ MORE

    Abstract : Glioblastoma is the most common, and malignant form of brain tumor. It is characterized by a rapid growth and diffuse spread to surrounding brain tissue. The cell of origin is still not known, but experimental data suggest an origin from a glial precursor or neural stem cell. READ MORE
