Using big data to fight dementia and Alzheimer's

Scientists striving to cure Alzheimer's disease and other brain disorders are turning to a powerful new tool they hope will light the way to effective treatments: big data. The idea is to use supercomputers to search through reams of patient data - everything from MRI scans to the results of cognitive testing to lipid levels - for patterns that might reveal the precise cause of neurodegenerative disorders, which have so far proved stubbornly difficult to predict, halt or even slow down.
