Lecture no. 34 from the course: Understanding the Brain
Taught by Professor Jeanette Norden | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
We look at what has been learned about factors that appear to increase or decrease the risk of contracting Alzheimer's disease, focusing on a study of Catholic nuns who showed a very low incidence of the disorder. This study and others suggest ways to make positive lifestyle changes that may help ward off this dreaded disease.
