So what can be derived? Alzheimer's is indicative that the brain is susceptible to disease, disorder and disfunction that morph into the degeneration of consciousness and ones ability to manipulate thought and recall some of the most memorable of memories. Alzheimer's is merely another front that physicians and neuropathologists alike have to conquer, in conjunction with a long line of disorders that have been evident since the existence of life. Alzheimer's disease is analogous to that of Cancer; a highly malignant impairment in which we are no closer to finding a cure than our attempt to irradiate the common cold.

Alzheimer's- The Dementia Realm
The erosion of thought and its processes. In short, that is what the most common form of Dementia is. Alzheimer's disease stems from the extensive research executed by german psychiatrist Alios Alzheimer and the observations made regarding it anatomy and physiology. The degradation of memory, logic, reasoning and some of the most fundamental tenets of human intellect sees the onset of Alzheimer's, a lingering, malicious disease targeting none other than our esteemed seniors. Statistics explicitly indicate both an exponential increase in the incidence of Alzheimer's and an increase in the chance of its diagnosis every five years once an individual has reached their late sixties. Inevitably leading to death, those confined with Alzheimer's become mere 'living corpuses', having no intellectual basis for their observations and and having a severe encounter with Amnesia and other related memory disfunction.
