This afternoon I did my thing for research into Alzheimer's Disease. I spent two hours being questioned, poked and prodded for science. This is a project at Washington University to determine what's happening to people who develop ALZ. I'm a control, meaning no one in my family has had ALZ. I got involved when my MIL was diagnosed with ALZ. MDH also participates, as a child of a parent w/ ALZ. One of the side benefits to participating is attending a show-and-tell on how the research is going in the spring and fall. They treat us to a brunch and several hours of research results presentations, at the Zoo<g>.Here's a link to several NY Times articles. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/12/14/health/14alzheimers.html?p...See the section w/ Dr. Randy Bateman (A Key Question) in the above.http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/11/health/alzheimers-preventi...They are progressing to testing drugs for ALZ in families w/ early-onset ALZ.It's really great to be part of a research project! Of course, the computerized portion of the psychological testing is pretty deadly. Truly BORING! Thankfully, the spinal taps are spaced five years apart.PM
