    General Facts About Alzheimer's Disease


    Well, reasonably and objectively, most people with certain amount of general medical knowledge would know that Alzheimer’s disease is actually a degenerative brain disorder that destroys neurons and neural networks / connections in the cerebral cortex, resulting in significant loss of brain mass. And as such, Alzheimer’s disease naturally should be medically diagnosable through brain scans.

    Next, generally & certainly, under usual circumstances, that could just be a normal metabolic & physiological phase / process of aging particularly when people get older and older.


    Other than that, under other rarely known scenario, it’s very much worthy to take note that, apart from the genetic and congenital factors as sometimes being suggested, and given the undisputed fact that Alzheimer’s disease invariably involves the phenomenon of brain damages, then the related post-birth causes of it should be reasonably, objectively & inclusively taken into consideration as well, whilst one of the many examples would be the neurodegenerative side effects of certain mind-altering drugs as explained through the excerpts below:


    Extrapyramidal Symptoms

    A network of neurons responsible for the motion in a body with coordination is called as extrapyramidal system
    . The extrapyramidal system gets affected in a number of ways thereby causing Extrapyramidal symptoms (EPS), a set of symptoms that relate to the attack in the extrapyramidal system - Extrapyramidal system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia .

    Causes of extrapyramidal symptoms:

    Use of antipsychotic drug causes extrapyramidal symptoms in most people. Anti psychotic medicines such as haloperidol used in curing schizophrenia can trigger extrapyramidal symptoms.

    Brain damages are one of the causes of extrapyramidal symptoms.

    Alzheimer's disease is thought to be caused by the abnormal build-up of proteins in and around brain cells.
