OriginEdit

Aloysius 'Alois' Alzheimer (1864 - 1915) is most known as the first person to publish information on presenile dementia which would later be identified as Alzheimer's disease. While his colleagues wanted to focus on the patient side of the senility Alzheimer wanted to focus more on the disease itself. The biggest issue that Alzheimer had with his studies was the availability of cadavers. Through form and informal arrangements he was able to receive the bodies so that his research could continue. Thanks to those bodies he was able to identify amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles, folded aggregates of proteins and tangled brain fibers respectfully.

EffectsEdit

When it came to informal requests Alzheimer's colleagues believed that Alzheimer had some sort of extra help to convince people to help him. It was discovered that when he went in person wearing his glasses he received the bodies, without them he was turned away. We can draw from that concept that he would hold multiple people in the confused state which allowed him access to the cadavers.
