Alzheimer’s disease is a brain disorder that causes neurons to die, slowly destroying memory and thinking skills. It’s the most common type of dementia, impacting an estimated 50 million people worldwide, and is a particularly serious issue for Japan’s super-aged society. Despite its prevalence, the causes remain poorly understood and treatment options are limited.
