Alzheimer’s DiseaseWhat Can Alzheimer’s Disease Teach Us About the Brain, Mind, and Self?

presented by Rudolph Tanzi, PhD

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia affecting the elderly and is characterized by global cognitive decline in learning, memory, reasoning and judgment. Alzheimer’s disease is strongly influenced by both genetic factors and lifestyle. While certain rare gene mutations, e.g. in the APP, PSEN1 and PSEN2 genes guarantee onset of Alzheimer’s disease before 60 years old, most cases of Alzheimer’s disease (less than 97 percent) involve genetic susceptibility factors and lifestyle, e.g. diet, exercise, intellectual stimulation and social engagement, stress levels and trauma, as well as sleep patterns. In addition, the effects of Alzheimer’s disease on the brain, mind, and consciousness are considered in this recorded presentation. In particular, the question of how the concept of “self “can be further refined in view of the effects of Alzheimer’s on the brain and mind. Further elucidation of the relationship between brain function, mind, consciousness, and the cosmos are also presented based on the concepts of neuroplasticity put forward in our recent book “Super Brain”, as well as the role of epigenetics in our new book (Nov. 2015), “Super Genes”, both of which were co-authored with Dr. Deepak Chopra.
