This work group aims to re-assess all current ideas and well-documented facts on the origins of dementia working toward a future unifying "ideal theory". The work group will create: 1) a common frame work for cataloging and comparing different ideas and 2) use an interactive website to communicate, discuss and refine candidate new conceptual models of dementia.

Evidence now suggests important linkages that may affect long-term brain health.
