How does Alzheimer´s disease affect memory?

Two Kinds of Memory

There are basically two kinds of memory - long-term and short-term. Long-term memory generally takes several months to form a single memory, but it has the potential to last a lifetime. Alzheimer's disease usually affects the ability to create short-term memory. This results in the common occurrence of sufferers remembering past memories as though they happened yesterday.
