Alzheimer's The Movie
Dr. Alzheimer would have been amazed if he could see this short animated film - created from brain images of living/diseased Alzheimer's patients - all participating in a study that imaged the group's brains over a two year period.
The animated film shows the path of destruction the disease from mild cognitive impairment to complete withering of the brain - documenting the complete process.
This kind of physical monitoring of living brains - is proving itself invaluable - as researchers now have methods to accurately diagnosis the disease process, identify the precise condition of the diseased brain, monitor for response to treatments and/or track recovery. The days of speculation or waiting until autopsy to confirm theories if over - today feedback is vivid and accurate.
