Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Alzheimer's disease consists of a progressive atrophy of the brain without a known cause or cure (Gruetzner, 1988; Jarvik, 1987, in Karlicki, 1987; u. s. Congress, Office of Technology Assessment, 1987; Pajk, 1984). This disease affects 50% of the 2-6 million Americans suffering from dementing illnesses (Rabins & Folstein, 1983; Mace & Rabins, 1981). The number of Americans suffering from dementing illnesses could rise to 7.4 million by the year 2000 (U.S. Congress, Office of Technology Assessment, 1987).
