Alzheimer Disease and the Central Nervous System

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive disorder that affects the intellectual mind. The condition is relentless and has affect millions of people worldwide. The disorder is increasing, which experts believe that gene (RNA/DNA) abnormalities play a part in the diagnostics of Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s disease increases to dementia.

According to experts, the disease affects “apolipoproteins.” Proteins E 2-4 is abnormal, which apolilipoproteins fail to unit with lipid. Lipid is a constituent of organic fats that work as substances distributing to proteins, carbohydrates, etc. The structure is a component that reaches the living cells. Alzheimer’s disease causes deterioration in the brain by obliterating the nerve cells. Once the nerve cells begin to deteriorate it causes a reduction of responses to other nerve cells. The condition spreads out causing chemical interruptions, the transmission of impulses slow, and finally tissues in the brain begin to get worse.

The tissue damage causes senile conditions, which sets in “neuritic plague or clomps that create lifeless “nerve cells.” The cells enclose irregular volumes of insoluble complex and organic compounds (Proteins) known as amyloaid. Amyloaid proteins are waxy-like. The substance is clear, which composes complex proteins of fibers, as well as polysaccharides that form within the body of tissues and is responsible for causing various degenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease.

Now how does this relate to the Central Nervous System? Considering that gamma-aminobutyric acids toil as neurotransmitters that send messages to the nerve impulses, which affects the central nervous system, causing the acids to form proteins we see how it relates.

The central nervous system makes up our spinal cord and intellectual mind, or brain. Within this Central arena, we have the cerebrum. The cerebrum is an distended anterior, or frontal lobe of the brain that separates two symmetrical or regular halves of the cerebral hemisphere and acts by allowing us to reason, learn, and use sensory awareness, or perception. Emotional responses form within the cerebrum. Alzheimer’s disease causes severe memory loose, which falters the person’s ability to reason, learn, and use sensory awareness, at the same time faltering emotional response.

CNS connects with the brain forming four round body parts, or lobes within each halves of the brain. The lobes make up the frontal lobe, parietal lobe, temporal lobe, and the occipital lobe. The front lobe marks our personality. In addition, the front lobe is the center of intellectual functions. The frontal lobe is also the center of our motor speech.

Now if you connect the dots, you see that Alzheimer’s disease definitely targets the frontal lobe, since the disorder is the cause that affects the intellectual mind.

But wait, the parietal lobe provides us sensations (Feelings, Vibrations), spatial (Space) relationships, and the ability to integrate sensory (Heighten Awareness) information. The parietal lobes rest in the center region of the brain’s two half hemispheres and lies beneath the crown of the skull. Now what happens if this area is affected?

We see that sensory awareness is interrupted with Alzheimer’s disease. Therefore, we can deduce that the disease also affects this region of the brain. The temporal lobe is the part of the brain, which two lobes combine. The lobes rest at the cerebral hemispheres and enclose auditory central parts that promote taste, hearing, smell, speech, etc.

Now, did you know we get our balance from the inner ear? We see that balance is interrupted when the temporal lobe is impaired.

Occipital lobe is the part of the brain that rests at the back, and forms the shape of a pyramid. The occipital lobe provides us the ability to interpret vision, rather see if you will.
