This week in the method section, Tom takes a look at Alzheimer’s! Now, why is a marine biologist talking about Alzheimer’s? Good question! There have been some remarkable steps forward in the realm of Alzheimer’s and dementia research from an unlikely source…dolphins. Tom looks through the latest research and updates from the marine mammal science field and how, in the near future, they will help us to unravel the mysteries of this devastating disease. https://soundcloud.com/joakimkarud.
