Alzheimers dementia

Alzheimers dementia --> alzheimers disease

(Science: disease) a progressive, neurodegenerative disease characterised by loss of function and death of nerve cells in several areas of the brain leading to loss of cognitive function such as memory and language.

The cause of nerve cell death is unknown but the cells are recognised by the appearance of unusual helical protein filaments in the nerve cells (neurofibrillary tangles) and by degeneration in cortical regions of brain, especially frontal and temporal lobes.

alzheimers disease is the most common cause of dementia.
