Possible Alzheimer Treatment With "Helmet Therapy"?

Interesting news on the science front: Although it doesn’t look very fancy, futuristic or anything like a medical device, this experimental helmet could possibly be used to treat Alzheimer’s.


It works by delivering low levels of infra-red light which may stimulate the growth of brain cells.

It’s already been tested in mice with promising results: they showed improved learning ability. A study in humans is due to begin in summer.
