Alzheimer's is a progressive brain disease that affects memory, speech, behavior, even personality. It's the leading cause of dementia, and researchers everywhere are on the hunt for ways to treat it. Right now, there's no cure. But could that change? Researchers at Case Western just found a promising drug that could potentially treat the disease, though it's still in the early stages of development. Join us Monday at 9 as we talk about the future of Alzheimer's on a Science Cafe edition of the Sound of Ideas.
