In AD, core problem is memory erasure because reminding AD patients with forgotten names or things are not making them to remember. Current behavioral assays and drug evaluations focus on learning and memory consolidation. Mechanisms for memory consolidation and memory erasure might be different. Drugs that improve the memory might not prevent the memory erasure in AD.
