Introducing one or more stimulating drugs to the brain and/or central nervous system is used to treat Alzheimer's disease. At least one implantable system control unit (SCU) produces drug infusion pulses delivered via a catheter implanted in the brain and/or central nervous system. The stimulation is delivered to targeted brain and/or central nervous system structures to adjust the activity of those structures. In some embodiments, one or more sensed conditions are used to adjust stimulation parameters.
