I Have Alzheimer’s or Another Dementia
NY Times Article
There is an interesting article in today's NYTimes on brain research. Just remember, this is a possibility for understanding why dementia happens. The dream of how to fix it i far in the future.
The collaborators also found that about 10 percent of people carried a gene variant that correlated with a slightly accelerated rate of atrophy in the hippocampus. The hippocampi — there are two, each deep in the brain, one in the right side and one in the left, about level with the ears — are needed to form new memories. People with dementia often show pronounced atrophy in this region. The study was not set up to find a link between the gene variant and dementia, but experts suspect a connection.
