Progressive memory loss and related cognitive dysfunction states have become a serious medical and social problem in Western societies. According to the U.S. National Institute on Aging, in the United States alone there are as many as four million cases of the most extreme form of cognitive breakdown.
With the increasing population of people over the age of 50, concern for memory, cognitive malfunction and other related conditions has become understandable.
