I am always interested in anything to do with dementia. But it is a resigned interest since even detecting it early does not affect the outcome as there is no effective treatment for Alzheimers.

"During the early-stage study, researchers found that “people with symptoms of cognitive decline typed more slowly, typed less regularly and sent fewer text messages than healthy participants.” Those people also rely more heavily on support apps, the research shows.

There’s a tricky balance to maintain with this kind of research, though. The study did not draw any conclusions, with researchers saying more analysis is needed. Furthermore, researchers are hesitant to share the results with patients because “there’s not much people can do to stem the decline.”

Currently I am just glad that folks are studying dementia and perhaps early detection can help find a treatment.
