Wearable headband detects early Alzheimer's while you sleep


A recent study looked at how certain brainwave patterns correlated with other indicators of Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers found that a simple wearable device to measure the brain’s electrical activity effectively detected distinct patterns that may indicate Alzheimer’s disease.

The study was published in the journal Alzheimer’s & Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer’s AssociationTrusted Source and shows promise in easy ways to detect Alzheimer’s disease early.
