Memory loss can be a result of a variety of things. Memory problems are associated with neurological disorders and conditions, such as head injuries, brain tumors, and multiple sclerosis. When memory loss starts to impact your daily life, that could be a sign of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. It’s important to consider Alzheimer’s testing for early detection.

There are four main times of memory loss: sensory memory loss, short-term memory loss, working memory loss, and long-term memory loss. Alzheimer’s disease impacts all four types, with short-term and working memory being the first to notice changes of in the early stages of the disease. Here we answer some of the most common question about Alzheimer’s disease:
