Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease - Current Research and Early Detection Methods
Dementia is not a natural part of aging. It is an umbrella term that encompasses all types of neurodegenerative diseases that affect memory, judgement, and cognitive skills severely enough to impact daily life. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia and comprises nearly 70% of all cases. During this course you will find out what researchers currently know about the disease as well as new methods for early detection.
