Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s disease is an illness that concerns us all, regardless of our age. After all, not only does this disease cause individuals to lose their memories, it also robs them of their identities. As our population ages, Alzheimer’s is becoming increasingly prevalent in our society, which is why it’s important to separate fact from fiction. These three segments are designed to present the facts on how Alzheimer’s disease evolves, what treatments are available, and how the illness can affect individuals living with it.

1. The degeneration in the brain that is responsible for the changes in a person’s thinking, emotions and behaviour that are associated with Alzheimer’s disease and its progression.

2. The treatments (both pharmaceutical and other), approaches and prevention (both current and experimental measures) .

3. How individuals react to a diagnosis, what they should do for themselves and others, and screening (validity and requirement).

Julie Raymond holds a B.Sc. in Biology and a B.A in Psychology from the University of Ottawa. She is currently completing her PhD in Psychology, in the Behavioural Neuroscience Department. Her researches focus on the influence of omega-3 consumption during the adolescence on the development of anxiety-like behavior and cognitive difficulty later in life. For the last few years, she’s been a teacher assistant for various neuroscience classes and a part-time teacher at La Cité Collégiale. Earlier this year, she received the Excellence Award for Teacher Assistants for the Social Science Faculty, as well as the Psychology department.
