memory problems are usually first sign of alzheimers
Behavioral symptoms include:
can be definitively diagnosed only after death by linking clinical measures
Sampling from the brain tissue and pathology in an autopsy
ask questions about overall heath, past medical problems, ability to carry out daily activities,and changes in
behavior and personality
conduct tests of memory, problem solving, attention, counting, and language
standard medical tests, blood and urine tests to identify other possible causes of the problem
Perform brain scans, such as computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), to
distinguish alzheimers from other possible causes for symptoms, like stroke or tumor
Decline in other aspects such as word-finding, vision,impaired reasoning, and judgement
people with memory problems have a condition called amnestic MCI
