Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s is a degenerative brain disease recognized as the most common form of dementia. It usually starts in late middle age or in old age and results in progressive memory loss, impaired thinking, disorientation, and changes in personality and mood. The degeneration of brain neurons especially in the cerebral cortex and the presence of neurofibrillary tangles and plaques containing beta-amyloid help to diagnosis it on testing.
