Alzheimer's disease is not a normal part of aging. Join us to learn about the impact of Alzheimer's; the difference between Alzheimer's and dementia; stages and risk factors; current research and treatments available for some symptoms; and Alzheimer's Association resources.

Additional Information

Recording of Mind, Movement, Memory: UNDERstanding Parkinson Disease and Lewy Body Dementia
Presented by Mark Pippinger, M.D. Behavioral Neurology | Novant Health Memory Care at Southpark | Charlotte, NC | on February 3, 2022. | Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) is the second most common cause of dementia and leads to a progressive decline in thinking, reasoning and independent function because of the presence of Lewy bodies, which are abnormal microscopic deposits of a protein called alpha-synuclein that gradually destroy certain brain cells. Lewy bodies are also found in several other brain disorders, including Parkinson disease, Parkinson disease dementia, and to a lesser degree in Alzheimer disease. Many people with Parkinson disease develop problems with thinking and reasoning, and many people with DLB experience movement symptoms, such as a stooped posture, rigid muscles, a shuffling walk, and trouble initiating movement. This overlap in symptoms and other evidence suggest that DLB, Parkinson disease and Parkinson disease dementia may be linked to the same underlying abnormalities in how the brain processes alpha-synuclein. Many people with both DLB and Parkinson disease also have deposits of beta-amyloid and tau proteins — hallmark brain changes linked to Alzheimer disease.
