The brain is a masterpiece that defines your uniqueness.
As you age, though, your brain may be susceptible to a terrible disease.
Alzheimers disease is the most common cause of dementia among older adults.
It is considered an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly erases memories and thinking, and eventually eliminates the ability to carry out the simplest of tasks.
Alzheimers disease may rank third, just behind heart disease and cancer, as the leading cause of death for elderly people.
Medical science continues to make progress in the search for therapeutic interventions and a cure.
Since 1983, hundreds of Alzheimers-related patents have been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office in an effort to eradicate this deadly disease.
To better understand these inventions, Michael J. Dochniak has written this book to provide an easy-to-read, brief summary of such patents.
Within the summaries are inventor profiles and news articles that are insightful and relevant.
Impactful inventors include a Nobel laureate, a soldier and an ex-convict.
Pioneering inventors include George Glenner, Barbara Cordell, Birinder Boveja, Joseph Buxbaum, Dale Schenk and Vivian Hook.
At the beginning of several chapters, you will experience a personal story about Alzheimers disease.
Most importantly, the book this novel is about keeping your brain healthy as you age.
