Alzheimer’s disease (AD), also called simply Alzheimer’s, is a neurodegenerative disease that manifests as cognitive and behavioral disorders. It is characterized in its typical form by a progressive loss of memory and other mental abilities, as nerve cells die and different areas of the brain atrophy. The disease usually has an approximate average of ten to twelve years, although this can vary.

The symptoms that define the disease were identified by Emil Kraepelin in 1906, at the same time that its characteristic neuropathology was first observed by Alois Alzheimer. Thus, the discovery of the disease was the work of two psychiatrists who worked in the same laboratory. However, Kraepelin felt that the neuropathological basis of the psychiatric disorder warranted naming the disease in honor of his companion.
The World Health Organization estimated that in 2005, 0.379% of people worldwide had dementia, and that the prevalence would increase to 0.441% in 2015 and a 0.556% in 2030. Several studies have reached similar conclusions. Another study estimated that in 2006, 0.4% of the world population (between 0.17% and 0.89%, absolute value approximately 26.6 million or between 11.4 to 59.4 million) would be afflicted by AD and that the prevalence would triple by 2050.
The causes of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) have not been completely uncovered. There are three main hypotheses to explain the phenomenon: the deficit of acetylcholine, the accumulation of amyloid, and metabolic disorders.
