This theory was born in the first description of the disease in 1907, when Alois Alzheimer found a large amount of those plaques distributed in the brain of his famous patient Auguste Deter, when examining her brain after her death.

By understanding the overlapping mechanisms of AD pathology, it is possible to get an idea of the complexity of this problem.
