The aim of this thesis was two-fold. On the one hand, I wanted to explore the impact of known risk factors on dementia and on the other hand, I aimed to identify novel risk factors.

Chapter 2 focuses on the impact of established risk factors of dementia.

In Chapter 3, I explore several emerging cardiovascular and metabolic factors.

In Chapter 4, I discuss the effect of several behavioral and emotional factors on the risk of dementia.

In Chapter 5, I summarize the main findings of this thesis, discuss methodological issues concerning the studies described in this thesis and give potential implications for clinical practice and suggestions for further research.
