The Guest Editor of this issue of Seminars in Neurology is Dr. Arash Salardini from Yale.

Dr. Moeller is an assistant professor of neurology at Yale University School of Medicine. He received his BSc degree from the University of New South Wales in anatomy and physiology, and his medical degree in medicine and surgery, also from the University of South Wales, in 1999. He underwent a postdoctoral fellowship in movement disorders at Yale University, followed by residency in neurology at the University of Florida. He then returned to Yale for his fellowship in behavioral neurology and neuropsychiatry, and joined the faculty at Yale as assistant professor. He is now a codirector of the Yale Memory Clinic and an associate leader for the clinical core of the Alzheimer's disease research center at Yale. He is an NIH-funded investigator in dementia, looking specifically at neuroimaging biomarkers in vascular dementia based on the connectome, as well as evaluating changes in microglia reactivity to lipopolysaccharide with PBR-28 PET imaging. Dr. Salardini is a highly regarded, up and coming leader in the Dementia field, and I feel quite fortunate that he agreed to guest edit this issue.

Dementia is a massive public health problem, and will only grow in numbers and severity in the coming years. Almost all neurologists and physicians must have a sound knowledgebase in this entity, and Dr. Salardini and his authors have put together a comprehensive review in this issue of Seminars, from which I know that our readers will greatly benefit. I very much appreciate the efforts of Dr. Salardini, as well as all of the contributing authors, for their marvelous work in this issue of Seminars.
