Brain's dementia weak spot identified

The brain has a weak spot for Alzheimer’s disease and schizophrenia, according to UK scientists who have pinpointed the region using scans.

The brain area involved develops late in adolescence and degenerates early during ageing.

At the moment, it is difficult for doctors to predict which people might develop either condition.


This is good news for exploring new treatment for dementia and schizophrenia. I hope one day in the future the doctors can cure schizophrenia and dementia with surgeries.
