and loss of neurons and synapses. Alzheimer disease, is the most common form of dementia. There is no cure for the disease, which worsens as it progresses, and eventually leads to death.
Open Access publications are very important for communication of research findings worldwide. The benefits of Open Access journals are apparent enough to raise awareness among scientists and other stakeholders to support for more Open Access Publications from the publishing groups.
