Using Sound and Sight in Alzheimer's Research


Recommended Posts

Scientists have found that certain biological changes in the retina and lens of the eye, and in the sense of smell, may help predict whether people with memory issues may eventually develop Alzheimer's Disease. Smell is another area of interest because the odor portion of the brain is vulnerable to Alzheimer's pathology and the ability to identify different smells becomes impaired early on in the disease.
