Thirty to forty million people are now afflicted with Alzheimers disease, a degenerative brain disorder that strips its victims of their identity and leaves families bereft and social services strained.

Despite considerable research, the underlying causes of Alzheimers disease remain shrouded in mystery. So, too, does the man after whom it was named. Alois Alzheimer (1864-1915) was practicing medicine at the Frankfurt Asylum in 1901 when he met a patient, who would become known as Auguste D., whose condition perplexed and intrigued him. Alzheimer is more than a biography- it is a story of scientific discovery at a crucial stage in the history of medical psychiatry.
