New Dementia App Helps Memory Loss Patients Find Memories
People suffering from Alzheimer’s and other forms of age-related dementia sometimes have trouble recognizing friends and family or knowing what to talk about when they visit.

Remember Me! is a smartphone app developed by engineering Master’s degree graduates Karthik Venkataramaiah, Vishal Kumkar, Shivananda Pujeri and Mihir Shah. They demonstrated their work at the 123rd Annual Conference of the American Society for Engineering St. Lawrence Conference held at Cornell. To read more, click here.
