He found within the brain abnormal clumps, now called amyloid plaques, and tangled bundles of fibers within the patient’s neurons, now called neurofibrillary tangles. Today, these plaques and tangles are considered to be the hallmarks of the presence of Alzheimer’s disease, although scientists have yet to determine the exact role they play in the disorder. It is clear, however, that a person with Alzheimer’s disease progressively loses healthy brain tissue, which causes a steady decline in mental abilities.
