Was reading this


NR1/2D receptors may be the least-studied of the major NMDA receptor subtypes, but there is increasing evidence that they play important roles in the brain, including the process of long-term depression (which, like long-term potentiation, is thought to be essential for learning and memory) and disease.


A better understanding of how NMDA receptors work could lead to better treatments for schizophrenia, Alzheimer's disease, and stroke.

Does say above that

So they is an understanding of the brain and its functions , as they is increasing evidence that they play important roles in the brain, including the process of long-term depression (which, like long-term potentiation, is thought to be essential for learning and memory) and disease.

Just like to add :) Whether the human brain can understand itself is one of the oldest philosophical questions :D

Predicting Alzheimer's
Psychiatrists Can Predict Onset of Alzheimer's with New EEG Test


March 1, 2006 — Using new computer software that analyzes EEG data, psychiatrists can now better distinguish early signs of Alzheimer's from normal aging, by spotting marked differences between the left and right sides of the brain. Diagnosing Alzheimer's early can be vital because new drugs can now slow the progression the disease. The new technique is cheaper and less invasive than using MRIs or PET scans for the same diagnosis.

Beth Cenicola's and her sister Dianne Burke's mother has Alzheimer's. They remember her as someone who loved to go places and do things. At 94, however, their mother has been battling Alzheimer's for eight years. "The hardest part is seeing your mother and knowing that she doesn't know who you are," Beth says.

Both sisters are getting a basic EEG scan as part of a new test that will predict if Alzheimer's is in their futures.
