Alzheimer's breakthrough

11th December 2007

A team of scientists working in the UK have made a major advance which could herald an end to the problems faced by people suffering from Alzheimer's disease.

The Leeds team have been working with Microsoft on the new system. A small camera takes pictures every 30 seconds, which can then be viewed by patients. This acts as a substitute for the memory process used by the human brain. The photographs are intended to stimulate the patients' memories and help them to remember what they did each day.
