There are different types of dementia, a condition that is caused by impairment of brain function. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia, and occurs when plaques and tangles form in the brain. These abnormalities disrupt the communication of the brain, leading to symptoms such as memory loss, executive planning impairment, communication difficulties, and even personality changes.
