The Road Map to Alzheimer’s Disease

July 13, 2012

Mayo Clinic researchers have created a map of the brain and found that activity lingers longer, in certain areas, in those with Alzheimer’s than it does in healthy people.  The results suggest varying brain activity may reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s Disease.

They compared brain activity to a complex network, with multiple objects sharing information along pathways. Lead author David T. Jones, M.D., says, “Our understanding of those objects and pathways is limited. We need a good mapping or atlas of those regions that make up the network in the brain, which is part of what we were doing in this study.”
