There are new ways for us to understand the details of the impact dementia can have. Massey's College of Creative Arts has teamed up  with an Alzheimer's disease institute in France to see how art therapy and the use of graphical tablets can play a role in the management of dementia.  Massey School of Art Lecturer Emma Febvre-Richards is one of the New Zealanders carrying out the research next year.
