What is Alzheimer's disease?

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a slowly progressive disease of the brain that is characterized by impairment of memory and eventually by disturbances in reasoning, planning, language, and perception. Many scientists believe that Alzheimer's disease results from an increase in the production or accumulation of a specific protein (beta-amyloid protein) in the brain that leads to nerve cell death.

Some characteristic symptoms of Alzheimer Disease include:


problems with performing familiar tasks


difficulty writing or speaking


loss of orientation to time and place


losing or misplacing items


mood or behavior changes


loss of interest in daily activities, and poor judgment.
