Alzheimer’s and the Brain – Vsauce

Very interesting overview of Alzheimer’s Disease, one of the many poorly understood diseases that afflict us. I only knew about the plague thing a few months ago; the association with Down’s Syndrome, chromosome 21 and the basic pathophysiology I did not. Hopefully with this foundation, we can get a better understanding of the disease and find a solution for preventing, delaying the progression or even curing it.

  1. Thanks for sharing, I’ll be sure to give this a watch! If you’re interested in learning more about Alzheimer’s you might consider following AlzScience. Some future topics includes whether microbes might be the cause of Alzheimer’s and how diabetes affects the brain. 🙂
