This thesis should be used as a guide to understand how neuroinflammation in the brain underlies the pathology observed in Alzheimer’s disease. I will aim to outline how healthcare practitioners diagnose and treat their patients, providing linkages between how neuroinflammatory processes can be targeted for future therapies. Additionally, I will discuss the psychological effects of this progressive and deadly disease and assess how patients and families cope with this prognosis.
