The scientist has proven that the birth of neurons in a region of adult rat brain migrates from their birthplace to other parts of the brain. The same process also happens in adult humans. There was no efficient visualization tool to view the functions and structures of the human brain. In this paper, we focus to design a framework to understand more about Alzheimer’s disease and its process of neurons in the human brain. This framework named a hypergraph-based neuron reconstruction framework. It helped to map, the birth and death of neurons with the construction and reconstruction of the hypergraph. This framework also recognizes the structural changes during the life cycle of the neuron.  Its performance was evaluated quantitatively with small-world networks and robust connectivity measures.
