What do the findings show?

The findings reinforce the idea that certain personality changes associated with AD are a result of independent risk factors, rather than a consequence of the disease itself. However, the new study does have its limitations. The sample was limited to individuals with a higher level of education. Furthermore, the researchers noted that certain changes in personality might make some individuals less susceptible to the brain pathologies that are characterized by AD.
