Alzheimer's Disease begins with the most vital component of any disease: the impact it has on the patient. After describing how the mental processes of an AD patient are affected, the physical changes -f an AD patient's brain are examined with an emphasis placed on how these changes alter the way a patient can think. Current theories on why people develop AD are discussed by looking at the roles of genetics and environment. To conclude, a number of the current treatments for AD are explained and the author offers some hope fm possible directions that will lead to new treatment strategies.
