HYPOTHESES (last update 3/28/200)
This link leads to an explanation
of the "Neuroplasticity Hypothesis": This
hypothesis explains that Alzheimer's disease attacks
particular brain mechanisms related to the capacity of the
neural networks of the brain to learn new information.
The loss of that ability is the central problem in Alzheimer's
disease. This hypothesis was originated by Ashford and
Jarvik in 1985.
For several other hypotheses, see http://www.alzforum.org/members/index.html
