This blog has been set up to provide a virtual space as an international meeting point for researchers, PhD students or anyone interested in studying this research area. The aims of the blog are: 1) to share information among researchers thus taking a multidisciplinary approach to Discourse Studies and Alzheimer's Disease; 2) to publish and update a blog with relevant links, documentation, congresses, conferences about Alzheimer Discourse; 3) to know find out where this type of research is being carried out and by whom; and 4) to be aware of the importance of studying Alzheimer Discourse to achieve an integral knowledge, not only, regarding interaction among discourse processes, memory systems and context, but also about the communicative profile and real needs of people living with this disease.
