See my recent post on Learning. Alkon, Olds, and Lester have been using 
the new learning paradigm to address Alzheimers. Apparently the syndrome 
is associated with loss of the P113 K+ channels involved in learning. 
Alkon indicates they now have a skin test for Alzheimer's, since the same 
potassium channel loss occurs in somatic cells.
