In Alzheimer's disease, the brain cells degenerate and die or Alzheimer's disease damages the brain causing a steady decline in memory and mental function and of how well you can speak, think, and do your daily actions. AD distinguished through two major neuropathological features: extracellular accumulations of amyloid-β peptides in the form of plaques and intracellular tangles, consisting of hyperphosphorylated tau proteins. Various functional and structural changes are associated with these lesions in the diseased brain, like kind of dendritic and synaptic alterations, as well as microglial and astroglial recruitment and their activation.
