Primates and Rodent Models for Dementia: A Review
Memory and cognitive functions are some of the most important and complex functions performed by the human brain. Any disorders which affect our memory will very much affect our lifestyle. Dementia and other cognitive dysfunctions are progressively emerging in the human race. To uncover newer drugs to cure such disorders we need better medium to understand the pathophysiological events occur during such disorders, so that we can make better approaches toward the cure. For such purpose different animal models are there. This review will uncover the most significant animal models. A thorough and critical evaluation of present rodent and primate models, their possible mechanism to cause such disorders and their role in drug discovery has been carried out. There are many possible pathological events that occur during cognitive disorders; in this review, we try to cover them all. This review will give a complete in-site of prognosis, progression, and evaluation of newer drugs has been made.
