Special issue information:
Aging has been described as a major risk factor for most neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s (AD), Parkinson’s (PD), Huntington’s (HD), and frontotemporal dementia (FTD). As aging is one of the major risk factors for most chronic diseases, tactics to promote healthy aging and combat the progression of age-related neurological diseases have become more important. Understanding the central biological mechanisms that underlie aging is important for identifying novel therapeutic targets for neurodegenerative diseases. There have been many advances in research on the molecular mechanisms of aging, and progress has been made in understanding the biological and genetic mechanisms of the aging process, as well as the pathogenesis of aging. Despite these advancements, more research is still needed to improve the screening, diagnosis, and effective treatment of age-related neurodegenerative diseases. Identifying functional links between neurological diseases and hallmarks of aging can reveal new therapeutic avenues. Non-pharmacological approaches, such as lifestyle modification, exercise, and nutritional interventions, may slow the progression of neurological diseases in older adults. The main objective of this special issue is to explore the latest important findings related to non-pharmacological interventions for age-related neurodegenerative diseases. We especially encourage the submission of original research and review articles that highlights the mechanisms involved in non-pharmacological interventions and therapeutic strategies for aging-related neurodegenerative diseases.
