    Int J Epidemiol 30:590-7. 2001
    ..Current knowledge of risk factors for Alzheimer's disease (AD) is limited. Data from a longitudinal, population-based study of dementia in Manitoba, Canada were used to investigate risk factors for AD...

    Neurobiol Aging 24:589-96. 2003
    ..This study suggests that amount smoked is associated with an increasing risk of AD and Alzheimer-type neuropathology up to heavy smoking levels. The lack of association in very heavy smokers may be due to a hardy survivor effect...

    J Gerontol A Biol Sci Med Sci 60:744-7. 2005
    ..Depressive symptoms are common in seniors and may predict dementia. The objective of this study was to evaluate multiple measures of depressive symptoms to determine whether they predict subsequent Alzheimer's disease (AD) or dementia...

    Suzanne L Tyas
    Department of Health Studies and Gerontology, University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada
    Am J Epidemiol 165:1231-8. 2007
    ..Thus, risk factors for dementia may operate primarily by predisposing individuals to develop mild cognitive impairments; subsequent progression to dementia then depends on only time and competing mortality...

    Department of Health Studies and Gerontology, University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada
    Age Ageing 36:650-5. 2007
    ..Although the concept of healthy ageing has stimulated considerable interest, no generally accepted definition has been developed nor has its biological basis been determined...
