Alzheimer's Disease: Sarah Polley's Movie, Away From Her

In continued postings here about Away From Her, I note that Julie Christie and Sarah Polley have just been nominated in Academy Award categories Best Actress and Best Adapted Screenplay, respectively.

The screenplay was adapted from a short story written by Alice Munro.

Hi, I'm an Art Therapy student and I´m working with dementia patients, specifically with Alzheimer´s. I´m interested in how the arts can help stimulate the brain and improve cognitive abilities. Please, if you know some articles or books that can help me, I appreciate it. Also, I wanted to make some research on this topic...I´m in Rochester, NY area, may be you know somebody that might be interested in this topic!!
