PARIS (AP) — Scientists in Australia are reporting encouraging early results from a simple eye test they hope will give a noninvasive way to detect signs of Alzheimer’s disease.

Although it has been tried on just a small number of people and more research is needed, the experimental test has a solid basis: Alzheimer’s is known to cause changes in the eyes, not just the brain. Other scientists in the United States also are working on an eye test for detecting the disease.     http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/E/EU_MED_ALZHEIMERS_DISEASE?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT&CTIME=2011-07-17-10-26-05
