Title: Systems and methods for improving memory in Alzheimer's patients

Abstract: In many aspects, the invention relates to systems and methods for providing memory therapy by modulating neural firing rhythms, in particular in Alzheimer's patients. The stimulation of neurons is controlled through a feedback process whereby neuron firing rhythms are altered based on naturally occurring electrical and chemical activity in the brain. Neurons in the nucleus basalis and dentate gyrus may be targeted in order to establish neural signaling pathways and establish communication between these regions.
