Lessons from Epidemiologic Research about Risk Factors, Modiﬁers, and Progression of Late Onset Alzheimer’s Disease in New York City at Columbia University Medical Center
This review summarizes the ﬁndings and importance of 12 articles from research at Columbia University in New York City that were among the most cited in the literature between 2006 and 2011. The 12 articles summarized in this review made important contributions to the ﬁeld of Alzheimer’s disease in the last 5 years. Four of the articles established the Mediterranean diet as a food consumption pattern that may prevent Alzheimer’s disease in addition to physical activity. Two of the articles advanced our knowledge of predictors of conversion from mild cognitive impairment to dementia. Four of the articles provided important knowledge of risk factors for the progression of Alzheimer’s disease and its complications. Lastly, one of the articles laid the theoretical framework for the study of cognitive reserve, an important modiﬁer of the manifestation of Alzheimer’s disease. These studies have advanced our knowledge about risk factors, modiﬁers, and progression of late onset Alzheimer’s disease.
