Alzheimer's Helmet

An experimental helmet which scientists say could reverse the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease within weeks of being used is to be tried out on patients.

The strange-looking headgear - which has to be worn for ten minutes every day - bathes the brain with infra-red light and stimulates the growth of brain cells.

Its creators believe it could reverse the symptoms of dementia - such as memory loss and anxiety - after only four weeks.

Well, I'll guess we'll find out in four weeks if this helmet is a major breakthrough in treating Alzheimer's disease or if this device will be shelved with other dubious headgear like pyramid hats, and tin foil beanies.
