Alzheimer s Disease

Alzheimer's Disease: Lifecourse Perspectives on Risk Reduction summarizes the growing body of knowledge on the distribution and causes of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) in human populations, providing the reader with knowledge on how we define the disease and what its risk and protective factors are in the context of a life-course approach. At the conclusion of the book, the reader will understand why Alzheimer’s disease likely begins at conception, then progresses through early-life and adult risk factors that ultimately impact the balance between pathologic insults in the brain and the ability of the brain to modify disease symptoms. In contrast to edited volumes that may have little cohesion, this book focuses on an integrated life-course approach to the epidemiology of dementia, in particular, Alzheimer’s disease. Reviews the current science surrounding Alzheimer’s disease Provides a primer of foundational knowledge on the disease's epidemiology and biostatistics Utilizes a life-course approach, providing a novel and integrated view of the evolution of this illness from genes to brain reserve Uses the ‘threshold model’—a theory first described by Dr. Mortimer and widely accepted today—which incorporates the idea of risk factors for the pathology and expression of the disease Proposes that improving brain health through modifiable behaviors can delay disease onset until a later age Examines the future of prevention of Alzheimer’s disease, a subject of great current interest

Are you having memory problems that seem to go beyond the ordinary, or do you see this happening to someone you love? Are there other difficulties, like struggling to follow a conversation or find the right word, getting confused in new places, or botching tasks that once came easily? Everyone has these experiences sometimes, but if they happen regularly, they may be early signs of Alzheimer's disease.

First documented at the turn of the century by German neurologist Alois Alzheimer, Alzheimer's disease is the most common dementia in older adults, robbing them of their minds and dignity. With the aging of the world's population, incidences of this degenerative brain disease are set to dramatically increase by 2010. However, there may be hope. Research at the genetic level is uncovering secrets of what makes up the disease and how it works. Presenting a history of Alzheimer's disease, this title

Moving accounts of what it is like to care for someone with this disease have already been published, as well as how-to books that offer caregivers advice and information on coping. But this book is the first to provide a comprehensive report of what it is like to have dementia oneself—the subjective experience of living with progressive memory loss. Each chapter discusses a different aspect of having dementia,

Dementia is a brain disorder that seriously affects a person's ability to carry out daily activities. The most common form of dementia among older people is Alzheimer's Disease (AD), which involves the parts of the brain that control memory, thought and language. Age is the most important known risk factor for AD. The number of people with the disease doubles every 5 years beyond age 65. AD is a slow disease, starting with mild memory loss and ending with severe brain damage.

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common type of neurodegenerative disorder in the ageing population, with dementia as a common consequence. AD is defined pathologically by the appearance of extracellular senile plaques and intracellular neurofibrillary tangles, as described by Alois Alzheimer about a century ago. The causes for AD include genetic predisposition in a small population, ageing and environmental stresses in majority cases. The underlying pathogenic cascades, increases in expression of amyloid precursor protein and accumulation of Aß and reactive
