Alzheimer's Awareness Month: Researchers seek a cure

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- November is Alzheimer's Awareness Month, and researchers across the nation including here in Wisconsin are searching for a cure. 

Dr. Anne Koplin, the Director of Research at Dean Foundation, says part of the problem is that a new anti-Alzheimer's drug hasn't been approved in 10 years. 

Koplin cites the classic symptoms, like memory loss and forgetfulness, as symptoms. But she also says to keep an eye out for behavioral changes. 

Watch the video above for Koplin's full interview on Wake Up Wisconsin Weekend.
