Can helmet fight Alzheimer's?25th January 2008
Scientists working in County Durham have built a "helmet" which is to be tested in order to see if it could fight Alzheimer's disease.
The helmet is to be worn for 10 minutes every day and will bathe the brain in infra-red light. Dr Gordon Dougal, who created the device, said: "Currently all you can do with dementia is to slow down the rate of decay - this new process will not only stop that rate of decay but partially reverse it".
