and Alzheimer's specialist at Washington University in St. Louis, who was not involved with the study, pointed out that doctors have other ways to detect mental decline, and there's still no preventive treatment for Alzheimer's disease.

Yet, "although I don't think this technology is ready to be applied in doctors' offices right now, I think it would be useful clinically in helping to determine what the underlying cause of the [mental] decline is, whether it's Alzheimer's or something else," Roe said.
