Alzheimers Disease
Alzheimer's disease (AD) or senile dementia of Alzheimer's type is a neurodegenerative disease which results in a loss of mental functions (dementia) due to the deterioration of brain tissue. Its exact etiology (cause) is still unknown, but environmental as well as genetic factors are thought to contribute.

Audiology

Autoradiography
Autoradiography is a sensitive and simple method of recording spatial distribution of radioisotope-labeled substances within a specimen material. The radioisotopic emissions release energy to the sensitive silver halide grains in the emulsion layer of the photographic film, thus forming a latent image. When treated with a developing agent , the autoradiograms yield visible density images which can be observed by the eye or measured by a densitometer for precise analysis (1). Radioisotope-labeled samples can be detected on polyacrylamide or agarose gels, nylon or nitrocellulose membranes, or thin layer chromatography plates. Autoradiography is widely used by scientists and researchers in the analysis of chemical mixtures, recombinant DNA techniques applied to genetic marker mapping, genomic sequencing, drug screening and plant fertilization studies.
