Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia (serious loss of cognitive ability). This incurable, degenerative and terminal disease. It was first described by German psychiatrist and neuropathologist Alois Alzheimer in 1906 and was named after him. Most often, it is diagnosed in people over 65 years of age, although the less-prevalent early onset Alzheimer’s can occur much earlier. Alzheimer’s is predicted to affect 1 in 85 people globally by 2050. For more information see the video:
