Abstract: Reports the work of a scientific group convened to review biomedical and health service research on demential disorders in old people. Research strategies for improving knowledge of etiology, treatment, and prevention are stressed throughout. Specific problems include the need to establish core diagnostic criteria, the effective use of epidemiological investigations to increase scientific knowledge, the definition of appropriate support systems for coping with dementia, and strategies for promoting interdisciplinary and intercountry collaborative research. The most extensive section covers the many lines of investigation focused on determining the causes of Alzheimers disease, including present and recommended research in the fields of neuropathology, neurochemistry, neurophysiology, cell biology and molecular biology. Close to 200 references are included
