This chapter describes the main neuropathological features of the most common age associated neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer's disease, Lewy body diseases, vascular dementia and the various types of frontotemporal lobar degeneration. In addition, the more recent concepts of primary age-related tauopathy and ageing-related tau astrogliopathy as well as chronic traumatic encephalopathy are briefly described. One section is dedicated to cerebral multi-morbidity as it is becoming increasingly clear that the old brain is characterised by the presence of multiple pathologies (to varying extent) rather than by one single, disease specific pathology alone. The main aim of this chapter is to inform the reader about the neuropathological basics of age associated neurodegenerative diseases as we feel this is crucial to meaningfully interpret the vast literature that is published in the broad field of dementia research.
