School of Medicine brain aging expert challenges the existence of Alzheimer's as a disease

In his provocative and ground-breaking new book, Whitehouse questions current approaches to Alzheimer's disease (AD) diagnosis and treatment and brings a new understanding to everything we thought we knew about brain aging.
