London: Scientists have developed what they claim is a 15-minute online test which can help detect the early signs of Alzheimer`s disease. A team at Oxford University has developed the online quiz called the Cognitive Function Test which it claims could help diagnose the most common form of dementia perhaps years earlier than it might normally be spotted.
The study showed the vitamin pill to be most effective when taken early but because people who are apparently healthy have no way of telling if they might benefit, the team created the test. Prof David Smith, an expert, said: "Alzheimer`s is a preventable disease, not an inevitable part of the ageing process. The trick is to identify decline in memory function as early as possible and take necessary prevention." PTI
