AlzFacts Alzheimers Disease

Summary: When the early changes of Alzheimers occur, the brain initially compensates for them, enabling individuals to continue to function normally. As the damage to nerve cells continues, the brain can no longer compensate for the changes, and individuals show subtle decline in cognitive function. As time passes, plaques and tangles appear not only in areas of the brain involved in cognitive function, but also in other areas of the brain.
