Dr. Bennett Machanic answered
51 years experience Neurology
Theory: This is a multi-neurotransmitter deficiency disease, and destroys the ability of nerve-nerve intercommunication and loss of ability to learn new facts and tasks, and progressive loss of prior abilities. This is primarily due to soluble amyloid toxicity and cellular damage associated with neurofibrillary tangles.
