Abstract

Studies elucidating how and why neurodegeneration unfolds suggest that a complex interplay between genetic and environmental factors is responsible for disease pathogenesis. Recent breakthroughs in the field of epigenetics promise to advance our understanding of these mechanisms and to promote the development of useful and effective pre-clinical risk stratification strategies, molecular diagnostic and prognostic methods, and disease-modifying treatments.
