New tests boost early detection of Alzheimer's

Early detection of Alzheimer's disease is considered to be crucial in treating it more effectively and researchers from the University of Tennessee have developed a computerised test which is more than 95% effective in detecting cognitive abnormalities associated with the disease. The computerised self-test had a 96% accuracy rate, compared to accuracy rates of 71% and 69% for the tests that are currently available.
