Lewy Body disease is
described as deposits of the protein alpha-synuclein inside the
brain cells. These deposits would then bother the brain by impairing
perception, thinking and behavior. These deposits are called Lewy
bodies which is named after the first person who described them in
the 1900s, Friedrich H. Levy.

the frontal and temporal sides of the brain and is considered to be
