Dr.'s John Morris and Randy Bateman are featured in the two hour, two part special titled Momentum in Science.

Amidst the heartbreak of Alzheimer's, there is real reason for hope. This two-hour, two-part documentary takes viewers inside the laboratories and clinics of 25 leading scientists and physicians, who seek to discover what can be done to better detect and diagnose Alzheimer's, delay the onset of memory loss, affect the brain changes associated with the disease, and ultimately prevent Alzheimer's disease altogether.

See Dr.'s David Holtzman, John Morris and Mark Mintun from Neurology on an HBO special about Alzheimer's Disease in this segment titled The Quest for Biomarkers.

Scientists need to know who will develop Alzheimer's and whether the drugs being tested in clinical trials are actually working. This film follows the hunt to find clinical predictors, or biomarkers, that are so critical to solve the problem of Alzheimer's.
