During the last ten years, sleep-wake disturbances have received growing attention in the field of AD, being considered as a modifiable risk factor for cognitive decline and AD. However, the underlying mechanisms are poorly understood and it is also unclear which aspects of sleep are relevant. It is therefore crucial to further understand the associations between circadian rhythms, sleep quality and AD pathophysiology to ensure this knowledge could be used to develop effective therapies and/or preventive strategies.
