    Alzheimer's is such a scary thing. I have seen people become so aggravated because they cant find the words to say or remember who you are. So frustrating. I hope that a cure is soon to come.

    It is such a complex study firstly the brain alone is delicate and complex however adding disease just makes an studies become very difficult and complicated, this is why discoveries and studies of these diseases is so complex and it more of family histories that give a bigger better picture to start the study, once diagnosis is made you cant assess the damage being done within the brain on a daily basis it is behaviors and social skills and abilities that need close monitoring to see how things are whether no change has occurred or keeping detailed documents that show any significant changes or deterioration's are clearly stated that doctors can alter any medications or care that supports the best possible way, these diseases are cruel for everyone involved and very difficult.

    Psychology -> Area of Study 1: Memory -> Organic causes of forgetting Organic causes of forgetting View the video showing Dr Jim Lynch discussing anterograde and retrograde amnesia. View the video showing Dr Jim Lynch discussing Alzheimer's disease, dementia and memory loss. Memory loss can be due to biological or organic causes. This can be as a result of physical trauma such as a stroke or injury. Organic amnesia is usually partial and a total loss of memory is rare. Anterograde amnesia - when a person cannot remember events which happened after the brain damage occurred. 'Antero' means forward, therefore it is the loss of memory 'forward' of or after the brain damage. Retrograde amnesia - when a person cannot remember events which happened before the brain damage occurred. 'Retro' means backwards, therefore it is the loss of memory 'backwards' of or before the brain damage. Alzheimer's disease - affecting one in 10 people over 65 years of age and nearly half of those aged over 85, is the most common cause of dementia. It is a degenerative disease that usually begins gradually, causing a person to forget recent events or familiar tasks. The rate of progression of Alzheimer's disease varies from person to person but this brain disease eventually causes confusion, personality and behaviour changes and impaired judgment. Communication becomes difficult as the sufferer struggles to find words, finish thoughts or follow directions. The person experiences difficulties with learning, thinking and reasoning, and most sufferers become unable to care for themselves. Scientists are still unsure as to what causes Alzheimer's. Age and family history have been identified as potential risk factors. Researchers believe that Alzheimer's is a complex disease, probably caused by a variety of influences. At this stage, there is no proven medical treatment to cure or stop the progress of Alzheimer's disease. Some drugs may temporarily improve symptoms related to the disease.

    Amnesia of any kind whether it be anterograde, retrograde or due to the onset of alzheimers disease is by its very nature insidious.
