Over the past decade, there has been a phenomenal expansion of basic and translational clinical research on frailty in older persons. Frailty is recognized as a state of diminished functional reserve due to multisystem physiological dysregulations. It is therefore a complex, heterogeneous syndrome with multiple dimensions that include physical, cognitive, and psychosocial components. In particular, the recent construct of cognitive frailty as a syndrome with evidence of both physical frailty and cognitive impairment has gained considerable interest and attention. It is clear, however, that while this emerging concept is being clarified and refined, much research is needed to advance understanding of the underlying processes and translational potential for clinical use. This special inaugural themed issue of Advances in Geriatric Medicine and Research aims to provide a series of articles covering all aspects of Cognitive Frailty. We are welcoming submissions of both original research articles and review articles on this topic.
