I guess there can be many reasons everyone is different, when my mother was going through it I was told the brain is like a muscle and like any other muscle if you don't use it you lose it....but there can be other reasons too...It might be a particular gene. I think they are close to solving this problem, lets hope so.

Alzheimer's is a kind of dementia, which is lethal and irreversible. Dementia is the impairment of brain functions (thinking, remembering, reasoning). Genetic defects, infectious and neurotoxic agents, neurotransmitter deficiencies are theories that cause it. hope this helps.

If the brain it is so atrophied looking in an Alzheimer's Disease case and if so many people dilling with it it is also important to finally found out what are the reasons, isn'it?
