Everyone’s brain has biological mess – amyloid-beta plaques and tau-protein tangles. Â Even those of us with fully functioning brains. Â Our cells are constantly replacing and repairing themselves, our brain cells included. Â Studies have shown that people with signs of dementia often have brains full of plaque. Â But this brain mess, is also found in people with normal functioning brains also. Â At this time, we do not know the causes of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Â When we push ourselves to learn new things new brain pathways develop.
