Scientists have developed a new sensor that can help detect cases of dementia;

It is hoped that the mechanisms developed can be used to increase the accuracy of the analysis.
Finding treatments or procedures to delay dementia can be stressful. But as science progresses, more elaborate mechanisms are developing that allow new solutions to be found.
With this in mind, scientists have developed a new sensor that could help detect dementia conditions, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
In the development of the mechanism, equipment based on quantum technology was used, which allowed to increase the accuracy of the analyzes.
We hope that these mechanisms will be used in future research to increase our knowledge of how the brain works.
The basis of the sensor comes from a technology called magnetoencephalography (MEG). The term comes from the idea of tracking the brain’s electrical signals transmitted between neurons.
From the emitted signals, each neuron creates a weak magnetic field. If detected, it could be used to map how the brain works.
Unusual behavior of these signs may indicate problems caused by Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and autism.
Although there is no cure for most of these conditions, early diagnosis, along with appropriate treatment, can slow the progression of the condition and even reverse the condition.
