Many of the references on Nimodipine have appeared in proceedings
of recent conferences on treatments for various type of dementias.
If my memory serves me correctly, some papers may have appeared in the
journal, Neurobiology of Aging.  There are clinical studies on the effects
of Nimodipine on the progression of Alzheimers ongoing - I believe that
one is being run by Wayne State Medical School.  I will post the references
to you offline as soon as I get a chance to go through my disorganized
personal library.
