Conclusion

This article shows that AD can be characteractized as an interlocking set of neuropsychological impairments that combine to provide a distinctive profile, considering AD as a single entity. At least in the early stages, areas of relative preservation of function can be identified, and these in turn can be used to optimize functioning. In addition, no person with AD is the same; individuals deviate substantially from the general profile, such that in clinical practice an individual analysis of the presenting deficits and their resultant disabilities should always be considered.
