Your Brain on Alzheimer’s
« on: Apr 13 07 12:44 »
 [blockquote] [/blockquote]A view of how massive cell loss changes the whole brain in [a style="color: rgb(0, 0, 255);" href="http://www.alz.org/brain/overview.asp"]advanced Alzheimer’s disease[/a]. This slide shows a crosswise "slice" through the middle of the brain between the ears.

In the Alzheimer brain:
[ul][li]The cortex shrivels up, damaging areas involved in thinking, planning and remembering.[font style="color: rgb(0, 0, 255);" size="4"]*[/font][/li][li]Shrinkage is especially severe in the hippocampus, an area of the cortex that plays a key role in formation of new memories.[/li][li]Ventricles (fluid-filled spaces within the brain) grow larger[/li][/ul][font style="color: rgb(0, 0, 255);" size="4"]* [/font][span style="font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;"]So in other words, it's a lot like being a Republican.[/span]

For thou art with me; thy cream and thy sugar they comfort me
Thou preparest a carafe before me in the presence of Juan Valdez
Thou anointest my day with pep; my mug runneth over
Surely richness and taste shall follow me all the days of my life
And I will dwell in the house of coffee forever.
