Cognitive Decline In Ad

AD is perhaps the most well-known example of a progressive dementia. The trajectory of decline, however, can differ among people. Nevertheless, there is evidence that the decline is not linear, with the rate of decline early on being slower than in the middle phase. It is not clear whether the rate of decline slows again in the later stages, partly because there is a lack of measuring instruments that can measure change across the range of severity of cognitive impairment. Many factors have been investigated regarding whether they influence the rate of decline overall. High levels of education seem to be associated with a lower prevalence of AD. Thus, education has been interpreted as acting as a mitigating factor in relation to the neuropathological changes that occur in AD. Con versely, a lower level of education may act as a risk factor in terms of determining the effects of decreased cerebral functioning. Other factors, such as age of onset and whether or not the person is in an institution or receiving community care, do not appear to have any systematic relationship with severity of dementia.
