Mind Hacks: Architecture of the brain

Mind Hacks: Architecture of the brain
"The building for Lou Ruvo center for Brain Health in Las Vegas is just beautiful.
The centre is a neuroscience research institute that was designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry.
It particularly focuses on Alzheimer's disease and other degenerative brain diseases. The 'Lou Ruvo' in the name is a tribute to the father of the centre's founder who died from dementia."
Find out more about architect Frank Gehry and be sure to see photos of the center.
An estimated 5.3 million Americans of all ages have Alzheimer’s disease and this number is predicted to double by mid-century.  This center hopes to help improve the diagnosis and treatment of  Alzheimer's disease .
