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.
