In 1974, Congress granted authority to form NIA to provide leadership in aging research, training, health information dissemination, and other programs relevant to aging and older people. Subsequent amendments to this legislation designated the NIA as the primary Federal agency on Alzheimer’s disease research." A large number of free publications, some provided in Spanish, are available for downloading. These include fact sheets, reports and a short e-book, Alzheimer's Disease: Unraveling the Mystery.
