Final- Abstract by Michelle Wong

 

Alzheimer’s Disease is often taken too lightly and people make simple comparisons to memory lost. A device will be attached to a person’s brain to create a simulation similar to what an Alzheimer’s patient would experience. The simulation includes memory lost, immobility, and communication hardships by blocking certain receptors in the brain. The purpose is the spread Alzheimer’s awareness and knowledge to the general public while it lets them experience first-hand the patients’ experience. This project is especially aimed at those taking care of Alzheimer’s patients to help them understand the frustrations the patients are experiencing.  Further development may be recording a patient’s memory prior to the advancing stages of Alzheimer’s.
