An article discussing celebrities and brain disorders in Vanity Fair has revealed that Chris Hemsworth has two copies of the gene ApoE4. This makes him between eight and ten times more likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease than those without both copies of the gene.
He has not been formally diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Although he is now aware of his heightened risk of facing the disease.
Mr. Hemsworth’s treatments using “sleep management, stress management, nutrition, movement, and fitness” may offer some benefits. However, much more can be done to reduce declines for those at risk. fMRI-guided TMS is used to reconstruct brain networks and guide magnetic pulses to specific brain regions. This treatment method provides a highly personalized treatment strategy.
