Hello! Our summer issue contains a wide range of topics ranging from a pilot study examining the effects of methylphenidate for apathy on visual attention scanning behavior,(1) to an attempt to find a consensus on essential components of the physical exam in the setting of a primary care-based memory clinic.(2) Other papers examine the factors involved in the delay between the onset of symptoms and clinical assessment at a memory clinic,(3) guidelines for gait assessments in the Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging (CCNA),(4) a systematic review of the national dementia strategies of various countries,(5) and an evaluation of Twitter use at the 2017 Canadian Geriatrics Society conference in Toronto, Canada.(6)

Thanks again for your interest!

Cheers,
