Alzheimer’s Disease News

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder that is the most common cause of dementia among older adults. It is characterized by the gradual decline in cognitive functions, including memory, decision-making, and language skills. The disease is marked by two key abnormalities in the brain: the accumulation of beta-amyloid plaques outside neurons and the presence of neurofibrillary tangles within neurons. These changes disrupt the normal functioning of neural cells and lead to their eventual death, resulting in the deterioration of neural networks that are crucial for cognitive and behavioral functions.
