Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a multifaceted neurodegenerative disorder characterized by progressive deterioration of memory and cognition. The disease will continue to constitute a major burden upon social and medical care systems due to the rising mean age of the population. The key symptoms of AD are primarily caused by cholinergic dysfunction. A significant correlation has been found between a decrease in cortical cholinergic activity and the deterioration of mental test scores in patients… Expand
