Trivia Tuesday: Alzheimer’s Awareness

Alzheimer’s disease, the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, hits close to home for many people, including actor Seth Rogen, who testified at the Senate hearing on Alzheimer’s research last week, to CNN’s Candy Crowley, who will serve as the keynote speaker at the 2014 Alzheimer's Association Advocacy Forum. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, Alzheimer's disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that occurs when nerve cells in the brain die. The disease often results in impaired memory, thinking, and behavior; confusion; restlessness; personality and behavior changes; impaired judgment; impaired communication; inability to follow directions; language deterioration; and impaired thought processes that involve visual and spatial awareness. Take this week’s quiz on Hopkins Happenings to test your knowledge of Alzheimer’s disease.

Excellent - this is a good way of testing what you know and learning about diseases.
