Darmiyan’s software detects early stages of Alzheimer’s

EXCLUSIVE: The brain is a complex beast. It has 100 billion nerve cells — called neurons — that connect to form the communication networks involved in thinking, learning, and remembering, among other things. Neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s disrupt the normal functioning of these neurons, leading to microscopic changes in the brain that begin long before the […]
