Description
A new research initiative called Early Detection of Neurodegenerative diseases (Edon) is being undertaken by Alzheimer's Research UK. They report, "diseases like Alzheimer’s begin damaging the brain up to two decades before symptoms show. Our new global initiative will use data from wearables to detect brain changes much earlier and open up a vital new window to target future treatments".
