Avoiding Alzheimer’s

Anyone who makes it into old age will have a brain that shows some signs of Alzheimer’s disease. The question is: Why do some people suffer symptoms when others do not? This hour, guest host Lauren Silverman will talk about new research into how we can keep our minds sharp and avoid dementia with David A. Bennett. He’s director of the Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center in Chicago and writes about his research in the July/August issue of Scientific American Mind.
