For real-life ailments and for an amusing look at vintage TV and literature, this week, Tidbits takes you to the doctor.
F In 1901, a German family named Deter brought their 51-year-old female relative to see Dr. Alois Alzheimer, a psychiatrist and neuropathologist. Mrs. Deter was experiencing short-term memory loss and difficulty speaking and understanding speech. Dr. Alzheimer had never before seen such strange symptoms and worked closely with his patient for the next five years until her death. Convincing her family to donate her brain to his laboratory, he noted considerable shrinkage in the outer layer of her brain, and through the use of staining techniques, he identified dead and dying brain cells, plaque deposits, and tangles inside the tissue. His research appeared in medical journals in 1907, and the disease was tagged Alzheimer’s Disease in 1910. This debilitating condition is now the seventh-leading cause of death, with a new case every 70 seconds. F Although we think of Frankenstein as the monster of the horror films of the 1930s, Dr. Frankenstein was actually the creator of the monster. He was a scientist who experimented with piecing together assorted parts of human corpses... F The doctor met his end in the Arctic Circle near the North Pole, where he had fled in pursuit of the monster with the objective of destroying him. The creation of a 19-year-old author, Mary Shelley, the book was first published in 1818. In the novel, Frankenstein was not a doctor, and the monster was never given a name.
