Our minds are like our body’s computer – storing precious memories we’ve collected throughout our lifetime. Sadly, when you have Alzheimer’s disease, every memory, thought and feeling you’ve ever experienced is at risk of being lost.
Your support of research will help “back up” these memories at risk.
Currently, Alzheimer’s disease has no known cure, but great strides are being made into discovering what causes this disease, what types of medication or actions we can take to reduce our risk and how best to approach finding a cure.

Alzheimer Society of Ontario has led the way to some fascinating research projects across the province. Research like that being done by Eva Vico Varela.
Eva, a neuroscience doctoral student at McGill University, is investigating deep brain stimulation in mice models. She aims to understand how electrical pulses could be applied to help people with Alzheimer’s disease in clinical trials.
If successful, this new treatment could help slow the decline of Alzheimer’s disease and improve the quality of life for people living with dementia. And this is just one of many promising research projects underway right now!
