Alzheimer's disease, the costliest disease to society, is rapidly increasing in prevalence. It surely is the pandemic of modern times, wreaking havoc on the elderly people (some as young as 40) of... More > the developed nations. With only a few weak hypotheses, the cause of dementia is not understood; all proposed medicines have either failed clinical trials or proven ineffective. This book carries a new, stronger, relatively broad-based theory of dementia causation. My model supports a much-overlooked 1989 theory by Matsuyama about how pervasive Microtubule collapse causes dementia. I show how the brain's psychological functions are carried out by neuro-circuital systems containing myriads of Dopaminergic and Norepic microsystems; I propose that, due to excessive electrical signalling in certain types of brains -- the signal conducting microtubules break down, causing the neuron collapse which characterizes dementia -- why? The culprit is either mechanical, thermal, or chemical stress -- more signalling, more stress.< Less

More > exceptional and persistent fascination to him; and especially is this true of the construction and functions of the human body. Possibly, indeed, it was the anomalous that was largely instrumental in arousing in the savage the attention, thought, and investigation that were finally to develop into the body of organized truth which we now call Science. As by the aid of collected experience and careful inference we to-day endeavor to pass our vision into the dim twilight whence has emerged our civilization, we find abundant hint and even evidence of this truth. To the highest type of philosophic minds it is the usual and the ordinary that demand investigation and explanation.”< Less

Hypnosis can be used in dentistry, obstetrics, and psychotherapy. In all cases, the patient's belief in its efficacy seems crucial.
