• Period, birth cohort and prevalence of dementia in mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan: a meta-analysis ﻿

(Wiley, 2014-05-22)
$\textbf{Objective:}$ There have been dramatic societal changes in East Asia over the last hundred years. Several of the established risk factors could have important period and cohort effects. This study explores temporal ...
• Population studies of sporadic cerebral amyloid angiopathy and dementia: a systematic review ﻿

(Wiley, 2015-05-11)
$\textbf{Objective:}$ This study aims to synthesise evidence on time trends of dementia prevalence in East Asian countries including Japan, China, South Korea and Taiwan and assess the impact of the societal changes on ...
• Prevalence Studies of Dementia in Mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis ﻿

(PLOS, 2013-06-11)
