Re: hypocanthus

If I were you I would ask my physician for a full explanation of what would happen in such a case.

Good luck!

Re: hypocanthus

I remember discussing this *a while ago* there was some research going on and a previous member said:

(it can be found here on the Healthboard thread: [url] nthus[/url]

Perhaps others can find it by searching for "Alzheimer's report" or "PET Alzheimers".
I read the story and agree that early detection by using PET scans of the hypocanthus of the brains in healthy middle aged people is interesting. The hypocanthus was less active in many of those who later developed either Alzheimer's or MCD (mild cognative dysfunction).

I hope the research emphasis is more on a cure and prevention tools. The article did mention several beneficial things we can incorporate into our lives to help ward off Alzheimers:
* drink a fruit or vegetable juice drink 3 to 4 times a week,
* stay mentally active by reading, doing puzzles and such, and
* stay socially active by meeting with others in clubs, churches, parties, and other social gatherings.

So there you have a thumbnail of what the article said!
... your loved one hasn't forgotten you ... the DISEASE doesn't remember you
