It can affect anyone, from night clerk to Nobel laureate. Physicians have identified more than 70 potential causes of irreversible mental deficiency, or dementia-which most often takes the form of Alzheimer's disease-and worldwide data indicate that its occurrence is on an upward trend. This program spotlights promising medical trials aimed at halting the mental and physiological tragedy of dementia. Linking the disease to organic neuronal damage, the film focuses on the development of medicines and vaccinations that could potentially cure it. Viewers are also introduced to therapeutic methods that make dementia less frightening and may help to relieve sufferers on the journey into a world devoid of memory.
