9780124078246: Diet and Nutrition in Dementia and Cognitive Decline

Diet and Nutrition in Dementia and Cognitive Decline offers researchers and clinicians a single authoritative source which outlines the complex interrelationships between cognitive decline, dementia and the way diet can be modified to improve outcomes. In a cross-disciplinary field like dementia research and practice, clinicians and researchers need a comprehensive resource which will quickly help them identify a range of nutritional components and how they affect cognitive decline and the development of dementia.

While the focus is on clinical applications, the book also features landmark and innovative preclinical studies that have served as the foundation of rigorous trials. Chapters explore the evidence of how nutritional components, either in the diet or supplements, can either impede the development to, or progression from, the onset of dementia. Authors investigate how conditions and processes overlap between defined conditions and present studies which show that dietary components may be equally effective in a number of conditions characterized by declining cognition or dementia. This book represents essential reading for researchers and practicing clinicians in nutrition, dietetics, geriatrics, nursing, neurology, and psychology, as well as researchers, such as neuroscientists, molecular and cellular biochemists, interested in dementia.

  • Explores the complex interrelationships between cognitive decline, dementia and the way diet can be modified to improve outcomes
  • Focuses on both clinical nutrition applications and the innovative preclinical studies that serve as the foundation for rigorous trials
  • Covers specific conditions and mechanisms in dementias, as well as general aspects, risk factors, lifestyle and guidelines for practitioners
  • Organizes chapter content in terms of the molecular, mechanistic, epidemiologic, and practical, so that correlations can be observed across conditions

Professor Martin has a keen interest in bariatric surgery, particularly the psychobiological and psychosocial aspects associated with bariatric interventions and his interest in this area is reflected in a systematic review of quality of life measures for use in bariatric surgery contexts as well as the development of a bariatric-specific quality of life measure. He is involved in collaborative International research with many European and Non-European countries.
