Alzheimer's disease is a form of senile dementia of unknown origin that has characteristic pathologic changes in the brain. Its onset is slow and at an earlier age than the common dementia. After onset, it progresses steadily and the pathology is more severe than the average form of senile dementia. Most studies report that this disease is responsible for the cognitive decline in about 50% of demented older adults.
