Eyeing an Innovation to Detect Alzheimer's disease, Physical Activity for Kids
It's been said that the eyes are the windows to the soul, but new findings from researchers at Johns Hopkins suggest they may offer insight into the mind, as well. We'll talk with Amir Kashani, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor of ophthalmology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, to learn about an imaging technique that measures blood flow in the back of the eye, which may offer a noninvasive way to detect early-onset Alzheimer's disease.

Then, everyone knows that physical activity is important for childhood development. On this week's Mayo Q&A segment, Dr. Amy Rabatin, a pediatric physical medicine and rehabilitation physician at Mayo Clinic Children's Center, explains why physical activity is important for children of all abilities, and offers some practical tips and motivation, to get your kids moving!

And, we'll talk stress, with Amy Serin, PhD, neuropsychologist, author of "The Stress Switch: The Truth About Stress and How to Short-Circuit It," who will explain what you need to know about stress and how to short-circuit it.
