Dr. Mayo – The Hippo Trick
Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive brain disorder that affects the brain in a variety of ways. First plaques and tangles, cells that destroy and kill our own brain cells, attack our hippocampus. This is where we hold a lot of memories, specifically tied to emotions. When this area is attacked, we typically forget short-term information, like where we put our keys, what we just read, appointments we made. As the plaques and tangles continue their tour, they move towards the front of our brain, the frontal cortex, where language develops, planning, logic, and decision-making happens. As a result, people lose their sense of decisiveness, organizational skills, ability to reason or think through the pros and cons of choices they make. These two areas, the hippocampus and frontal cortex, lose functioning and are considered to cause mild Alzheimer’s disease.
