BRAIN CALL.

DOCTORS want people to sign up to donate their brains when they die to help find a cure for Alzheimer's disease.

The South West Brain Bank has 800 brains affected by the illness - but need "normal" ones to help with research.

Professor Seth Love said: "We can't be certain that what we're looking at in brain tissue from someone with Alzheimer's is abnormal unless we have the opportunity to compare it with a normal brain from someone of the same age."
