- Jun 1, 2001Hi Herman,
Quick response. Alzheimer disease is characterized not only by memory
problem. There a lot more requirements to Dx this disease, memory problem
alone is not Alzheimer. There also need further higher cognitive
impairments such as aphasia(language impairment), apraxia (motor impairment),
agnosia (recognition impairment) and impairment in executive function i.e
planning, organizing, sequencing or abstracting.
Their ability to focus or concentrate is severely affected as well. So I
don't think that is better. Mind and citta are very complicated phenomena.
