$10.69Store.ClinicalPosters.com Poster discusses the aging brain, dementia and methods of diagnosing AD.
This 20" x 26" poster defines Alzheimer's Disease (AD) and discusses the aging brain, dementia and diagnosing AD. It lists risk factors and describes symptoms of the three main stages so physicians and family can recognize warning signs. Key management techniques are offered for patients, their families and caregivers. Understanding Alzheimer's Disease illustrates and discusses the areas of the brain affected by the disease: amyloid plaques (also called senile plaques) and physical changes to the cerebral cortex. It shows and describes the abnormal cellular structures involved (granulovacuolar degeneration and neurofibrillary tangles) and how AD destroys how neurons "talk" to each other. Purple is the color for Alzheimer's Awareness month.
