Caption: Alzheimer's disease. Conceptual computer artwork of a brain affected by Alzheimer's disease. The condition causes the death of brain cells (seen enlarged from centre left to lower right). Symptoms include memory loss and disorientation. The causes of Alzheimer's are poorly understood, but it is associated with the formation of plaques of insoluble protein (amyloid) in the brain, and decreased levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Aging is the main risk factor. It is incurable, but the symptoms can be treated with drugs to raise acetylcholine levels, such as Aricept, Exelon and Reminyl.
