00:48 Hello and welcome to Health for a Lifetime.00:50 I'm your host Don Mackintosh, 00:51 and we are delighted to have BernellBaldwin with us 00:54 today. Welcome . Glad to be here.00:57 Now, I understand that you are scientist and your specialty01:01 is the brain. Right. 01:03 And you have studied the brain; youhave got some ongoing 01:07 research going on. Yes. You've taughtmedical students 01:10 and all different types of studentsfor many years. 01:13 As I recall your Ph. D. was. whatwas it that you focused on?
01:18 In neurophysiology. We map the brainfor influences 01:23 on the heart. OK. Influences on theheart. 01:26 For instance, we got 90 minutes of arrhythmiafrom stimulation 01:29 of the cortex of the brain, and we stoppedthis in 2 seconds 01:34 by stimulation in certain spots.01:37 Of the brain? Right. 01:38 And it influenced the heart. So, thebody is connected. 01:41 Hyper connected. Very connected, wehope at least. 01:45 Well, today there's something that hasto do with connections
01:48 again. We are going to be talking aboutdementia 01:50 and Alzheimer's disease. Well, who reallyworries about this 01:54 in America anyway, would you say?01:56 Caregivers worry about this. 01:58 OK. And people who are losing02:00 their memory and faculties worry 02:02 about this. Umhmm.02:04 We really need to understand 02:06 what's going on so that we can prevent.02:08 Most Alzheimer's disease and most dementia can be prevented02:13 now. That's very good news. Let's come back to that.02:18 But what is dementia? What does it cause?
02:21 What does the diagnosis mean: dementia?02:25 Yes. Dementia. In the medical sense dementia is02:31 loss of memory, loss of faculties, 02:34 loss of judgment, and loss of a capacityfor social and normal 02:40 communication in life. Does the personusually recognize it? 02:45 Sometimes yes, and often no.02:49 Umhmm. How big a problem is it? 02:53 It's common. Alzheimer's disease isabout the 5 cause of death 02:57 of older ladies. This is a BIG problem.03:01 And the older people are the more tendency there is to get03:06 Alzheimer's disease. We all need to
understand this so that we03:09 can prevent it intelligently. 03:12 Now when we were talking about03:14 this just before we started 03:15 you said there was also a03:16 problem with spatial orientation. 03:18 What do you mean by that?03:20 Umm. A person who has significant Alzheimer's disease03:24 may not only forget how to find the bathroom,03:28 they even forget what state they're in.03:31 Umm, OK. So someone is not knowing where they are03:34 in terms of what state or different
things.03:37 What about socalled confabulation or making up03:40 sentences? Yes. There are several modes of sliding into03:44 Alzheimer's disease, and one of these could be psychiatric.03:48 And you could have confabulation and this kind of thing.03:53 And that would be when, for instance, 03:57 take the frontal lobe. If the frontallobe is 04:01 in such disarray and if so many nervecells are dead, 04:05 then confabulation would be just obvious.04:10 And when we say confabulation we mean
