How to Cite Content from the Alzheimer Research Forum
We suggest the following citation formats for content on the Alzheimer Research Forum, based on the AMA Manual of Style, published by the American Medical Association.
In general, content published in a web site is cited using the following style:
The name of the author, the name of the webpage, the name
of the entire website, the full date of the page (if available),

*The date of access should reflect the date when author examine

For various reasons, content in a web site might change after it has been published, and a note to the date of access will provide a point of reference.
