Advancing Our Understanding of Alzheimer's Disease

Advancing Our Understanding

According to the National Institute on Aging, "Thirty years ago, we knew very little about Alzheimer’s disease.

Since then, scientists have made many important advances. Research supported by NIA and other organizations has expanded knowledge of brain function in healthy older people, identified ways we might lessen normal age-related declines in mental function, and deepened our understanding of the disease.

Many scientists and physicians are now working together to untangle the genetic, biological, and environmental factors that, over many years, ultimately result in Alzheimer’s.

This effort is bringing us closer to the day when we will be able to manage successfully or even prevent this devastating disease."
