In celebration of the opening of Cohen-Rosen House, our new memory care assisted living community, we continue our spring “Remember This” seminar series.

This talk will describe the criteria for the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease, what the common cognitive and behavioral symptoms are, what the genetic and other risk factors are, what changes occur in the brain as the disease develops, what the current methods are for measuring these changes in the living brain, and what the current status and future prospects are for developing new therapies.
