Overview

With the growing life expectancy of the human population, the number of people afflicted by Alzheimer's disease will increase dramatically by 2010. Alzheimer's disease, the most common dementia, robs people of their minds, their memories, and often their dignity. There may be hope, however: Research at the genetic level is uncovering the secrets of what causes the disease and how it works. This book presents a history of the disease and of the development of our current knowledge about it. The book also looks at the human genome and at how the pieces of the Alzheimer's puzzle are beginning to fit together.
