Alzheimer’s and Deep Brain Stimulation

VIDEO:

Researchers are exploring a therapy that involves the use of a surgically implanted device that delivers mild electrical pulses to specific areas of the brain in people with Alzheimer’s. Listen to one couple’s experience.


People with mild Alzheimer’s who are participating in the ADvance II Study to determine the efficacy of deep brain stimulation (DBS) discuss their experience with the therapy, which involves a surgically implanted device that delivers mild electrical pulses to the fornix, a place in the brain that plays a central role in memory.

Welcome

This site was inspired by my Mom’s autoimmune dementia.

It is a place where we separate out the wheat from the chaffe, the important articles & videos from each week’s river of news. With a new post on Alzheimer’s or dementia appearing on the internet every 7 minutes, the site’s focus on the best information has been a help to many over the past 15 years. Thanks to our many subscribers for your supportive feedback.

The site is dedicated to all those preserving the dignity of the community of people living with dementia.
