Diet is one area which has not had a lot of research done when it comes to dementia or Alzheimer's Disease, but Martha Clare Morris, ScD, from Rush University Medical Center hopes the work of her team can help paint a clearer picture of how this can help patients in the future. Morris said having worked in the field for more than two decades she has seen the benefits of proper diet and exercise in maintaining and improving cognitive abilities which can help their quality of life as they get older.
