Blind man regains partial sight thanks to bionic eye

October 19th, 2014 at 8:23 am » Comments Off

Larry Hester is the 7th person in the U.S. to have a bionic eye implanted. Thanks to bionic eye technology, people diagnosed with a degenerative eye disease are seeing a new future. And Larry Hester is the seventh person in the U.S. to have a so-called bionic eye – an Argus II Retinal Prosthesis Device […]



Memory loss from Alzheimer’s disease reversed with lifestyle changes

October 13th, 2014 at 1:15 pm » Comments Off

This is the first time researchers have been able to reverse the memory loss caused by the disease. The first time ever, huge lifestyle interventions seems to have reversed memory loss caused by Alzheimer’s disease in some patients.. The findings stemmed from the joint efforts of a team from UCLA’s Mary S. Easton Center for Alzheimer’s Disease […]



Novel treatment may reverse memory loss in Alzheimer’s patients
