Alzheimer's Disease


From time to time, everyone has a moment where they’ve forgotten their car keys or lost their train of thought.

Atlantic Neuroscience Institute has put together a check list of questions, which can help you decide if an evaluation by a specialist may be necessary. Our Memory and Cognitive Disorders Program offers state-of-the-art brain imaging, including computer programs that can compare a patient’s brain to a database of age-matched normal subjects to pinpoint abnormalities.
