This would be most excellent news for my father as he is showing signs of early onset alzheimers, I really feel for him as he is quite a brilliant man and even the early stages of this disease have left him slightly broken inside, it really is painful to watch as i'm sure it's even more painful to endure.

Digital Alzheimer's. Go figure.


Seriously though that's great news. My mom is suffering from early stages of it. It affects a lot of people and not just the ones with the disease but their family and friends as well.
