Well, so far it is a hypothetical theory.
Alzheimer’s involves an overproduction of amyloid clogging up the neural synapses. Perhaps they believe they can directly bypass this essential connection?
I actually am somewhat bionic myself! lol!
I have a Spinal Cord Stimulator. It is about 65% effective in eliminating severe pain. I have a small remote control that I can increase/decrease the electrical stimuli that intercepts the pain signals from my severed spinal nerves. I can somewhat change the location of the signals from mid back to tail bone area. I could even turn it off completely. I like having complete control of anything artificially inserted in my body! I am not ready to go full Automatron! lol.
The implant is inserted in a “fat pocket” on my upper left hip. Since I have lost 60 lbs the implant is easily detectable.
I wear a belt for an hour with a charged battery pack that recharges the implant about once every week. It allows me total mobility while it charges, vs being “plugged into” a wall receptacle!
The remote is charged every 2 weeks by electric receptacle but I don’t have to be nearby.
Yes, it is amazing how many of our “parts” are not our own!
I have a titanium rod, a titanium cage and pedicle screws holding it all together in my spine!
I have titanium parts and screws in both ankles where I broke both several years ago!
The titanium parts, I’ve been told will last longer than I do! However they seem to draw the cold temperatures in the winter? Or it may be my imagination?
The Leftists have left us!
