Alzheimer's disease (AD) and other forms of dementia can have a large impact on patients, their families, and for the society as a whole. Current medical treatments have not shown enough potential in treating or altering the course of the disease. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) has shown great neuromodulatory potential in Parkinson's disease, and there is a growing body of evidence for justifying its use in cognitive disorders. At the same time there is mounting interest at less invasive and alternative modes of neuromodulation for the treatment of AD. This manuscript is a brief review of the infrastructure of memory, the current understanding of the pathophysiology of AD, and the body of preclinical and clinical evidence for noninvasive and invasive neuromodulation modalities for the treatment of cognitive disorders and AD in particular.
