What Is Brain Atrophy?

Brain atrophy is a degenerative condition of the brain characterized by loss of brain tissue, causing the brain to shrink.

Q: How does loss of brain tissue affect the body?

A: Loss of brain tissue will result in dysfunction depending on the area of the brain that is affected.

For example, loss of brain tissue in the lower brain, or cerebellum, will impair muscle coordination in activities such as walking, while loss of brain tissue in the frontal lobes of the cerebrum will impair cognition such as thinking, judgment, analysis, mathematical ability, and memory.
