Everyone should do this easy Alzheimer’s test as early detection is so important. The University of Florida Health researchers have found a unique and extremely simple method of testing for Alzheimer’s disease. Would you have ever guessed it is a lump of peanut butter and a ruler! They are used to detect the disease and encourage an early diagnosis. Jennifer Stamps a graduate of the UF Mc Knight Brain Institute Center for Smell and Taste had the idea to do a smell sensitivity test using peanut butter. She had observed patients were not being tested for their sense of smell. The sense of smell corresponds with the first cranial nerve and is one of the first things to be impacted in cognitive decline. The results of the pilot study Jennifer and her colleagues did can be found in the Journal of the Neurological Sciences.
