As the treatments for Alzheimer's disease and related dementias move toward interventions aimed at the underlying disease process, and not just symptoms, we need to be sure to understand all the brain changes that underlie the symptoms ("syndrome") that we observe. This presentation will review the brain changes of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias, how frequently they occur and co-occur, how we might detect those changes in individuals at risk or suffering from dementia, and how we'll be using new treatments to slow and treat the brain changes driving the symptoms. 

This event is brought to you in partnership with Bader Philanthropies, Helen Daniels Bader Speaker Event Series
