U research raises hope of reversing Alzheimer\’s (Minneapolis Star Tribune, July 14)

University of Minnesota researchers have reversed memory loss in mice with Alzheimer\’s disease, raising the tantalizing possibility that the same thing can be done in humans.
Their findings may also challenge long-held assumptions about how the debilitating disease destroys memory and intellect, resulting in dementia for millions of people.

What exactly were these mice forgetting? Where they put their car keys? Where they last saw the remote control? How to play Rachmaninoff\’s \”Etude-tableau In D Major\” on the oboe?
