New Direction For Alzheimer's Research

The scientific focus on Alzheimer's is starting to bear interesting fruit. This article from ScienceDaily discusses research supporting a new theory that predicts the biochemical causes of Alzheimer's to be reversible. From the article: "It might be possible to not only slow down memory loss, but to actually reverse it, to bring memory function back to normal." Progress in the fight against neurodegenerative conditions is very important for healthy life extension: the brain is the one organ that can't be replaced or renewed using near-future stem cell based regenerative medicine.
