    Mirror neurons are the type of neurons that mimic the action of bystander. They are present in the premotor and primary motor cortex, rostral division of the ventral premotor cortex. They help in understanding, speech, social cognition, etc., Alzheimer disease is a neurodegenerative disorder which leads to loss of memory in elderly adults. It is caused mainly by two types of abnormalities such as beta-amyloid plaques and tau proteins. It is hypothesized to have a link with motor function and known as cognition hypothesis. In this study, Alzheimer drugs donepezil, rivastigmine, and memantine are chosen to estimate the binding efficiency using Autodock1.5.6 software which is a suite of automated docking tools. It is designed to predict how small molecules, such a substrate or drugs bind to receptor of known three-dimensional structure. From the result obtained we have concluded that Donepezil helps to treat Alzheimer more effectively than other drugs when it is combined with 3CYY protein.
