Alzheimer´s Disease

Alzheimer's is a dementia causing problems with memory then continuing to change behavior and thinking. Is not a disease that comes with aging but symptoms are discvoered later in life, 65 years or older. Alzheimer's worsens overtime. The brain has over 100 million nerve cell with special jobs that this disease can disrupt.

What is it?

The causes for Alzheiemer's is unknown. Scientists strongly agree with the "amyloid cascade hypothesis", data from a study on younger-onset patients. The mutation produces too much of a protein called ABeta in the brain.




Discover Alzheimer's earlier in age. The younger an individual is, the sooner treatments can begin and give a better outcome. Virtual Reality Tests can help predict this disease in young adults long before being diagnosed.
