< The longer that two brain regions -- the prefrontal lobes and the

                  parahippocampal cortex -- both lit up on the MRI scans,
the better people
                  remembered the items. Words or pictures that caused weak
activity in the
                  two regions were forgotten. >

A medico tells me (but since my parahippocampal cortex was out of the loop, I've forgotten the details) that the hot new non-steroidal (?) replacement for aspirin looks like nipping Alzheimer's in the bud. We'll take prophylactic doses each day. Anyone got details?
