The Many Faces of Dementia

UCL (University College London)

Overview

Dementia is not a single condition, but an umbrella term for a group of diseases like Alzheimer's that target the brain in different ways. And as the global population ages, dementia has become one of the most feared and least understood conditions affecting us today.

In this course, experts from University College London provide insight into current dementia studies from clinical and personal perspectives. Chris Hardy is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Dementia Research Centre, while Claire Waddington is a research assistant and support worker at Rare Dementia Support.

The Many Faces of Dementia follows the stories of four people with lesser-known forms of dementia. While there is still no cure for dementia, prognosis and treatments vary for each type, and research continues to advance.

"We desperately need to find treatments that can delay the onset or slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease – I hope that the methods we have developed will help identify which potential treatments show the most promise of being effective and should go forward into larger clinical trials."

Nick Fox, researcher at UCL Institute of Neurology
