Keep up to date with dementia research

Links to websites that publish research

If you would like to keep up to date with developments in the field of dementia research, you will find news on most of the key websites of the major charities, Alzheimer’s Association, Alzheimer’s UK, Dementia UK, Alzheimer’s Research UK and others. Other reliable sites include government-sponsored information from the NHS, NIH or CDC. While these are authoritative and accurate on the whole, they reflect the organisation’s aims. As a rule, whenever you read material on the internet, it’s advisable to ask yourself ‘What are the interests of the organisation behind the site, and how might these interests affect what they publish on it?”.

Peer review is the process by which scientists scrutinise each other’s work before publication. Published papers undergo peer review to ensure that they are free from errors or misrepresentations. PubMed Central is a good source of peer-reviewed publications on dementia.

Science Daily provides a digest of research relating to dementia, but it is always a good idea to read the paper on which a summary article is based.
