Abstract

Between national unification and World War I, Germany was preeminent in many areas of science and medicine. Alois Alzheimer, who lived during this period, was one of the founders of the field of neuropathology. His name will always be linked with the form of dementia that he described 100 years ago. Here we mark this anniversary by discussing Alzheimer's contributions to dementia research in the context of his life and times.
