The Progression of Alzheimer's

Alzheimer’s disease progresses gradually over a period of years. As the individual’s functional impairments become more pronounced, he or she requires an increasingly intense level of Alzheimer’s care. When you watch this video, you will learn about the progression of Alzheimer’s disease via an animation of the processes of the brain.

This animation explains how neurons and neurotransmitters function as the communication system of the brain. As Alzheimer’s progresses, this communication is compromised, which causes memory loss and other impairments. The progression of Alzheimer’s is marked by the development of neurofibrillary tangles and beta-amyloid plaques.
