about

Working from the intriguing hypothesis that Alzheimer''s dementia is the result of a renegade protein-beta amyloid-Tanzi and others set out to find the gene responsible for its production. Decoding Darkness takes us deep into the minds and far-flung labs of many a prominent researcher, offering an intimate view of the high stakes of molecular genetics, the revolution that propels it, the obstacles that threaten to derail it, and the families whose lives are so dependent upon it. Tanzi and Parson ultimately reveal that Alzheimer''s, like heart disease, may be effectively treated-even prevented.
Rudolph E. Tanzi is Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School and Director of the Massachusetts General Hospital''s Genetics and Aging Unit. Science journalist Ann B. Parson is co-author, with Isaac Schiff, M.D., of Menopause, and until recently taught in Boston University''s graduate program in science and journalism.
