Sometimes I Feel Like a Piece of Bologna

Breakthrough for Dementia? reports that medical experts in the North-East of England believe they have found the key to turning back the brain’s biological clock and reverse the effects of dementia and memory loss.

Research at the University of Sunderland has shown that regular exposure to safe low level infra-red light can improve learning performance and kick-start the cognitive function of the brain.

Researchers are beginning human trials to see if the treatment can provide a cure to illnesses like Alzheimer's. Experts claim that early stage dementia patients should see an improvement in their cognitive function within four weeks, by wearing a lightweight helmet in their home for just ten minutes a day.

This looks like an innovation many of us will want to follow.
