Alzheimer's around the world

This is the third post in a series on Alzheimer’s disease in places beyond the borders of the United States.

COSMOS is an Australia-based science magazine that has a global reach. Today, they published an article called “An Ultrasound Cure for Alzheimer’s?” The article discusses how clumping proteins in the brain have been linked to Alzheimer’s, and how using ultrasound technology that can break up those proteins has shown intriguing results on mice with memory problems.

This research took place at the University of Queensland in Australia and is generating a lot of interest and buzz. You can read more about the study in the article on COSMOS.
