How can alzheimer's disease be related to cholinesterase inhibition?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Treatment: Several medications used to treat alzheimers, e.g. Donepezil and rivastigmine, are cholinesterase inhibitors. These medications increase the level of acetylcholine in the brain. Low levels of acetycholine in certain areas of the brain are associated with alzheimer's.
