Electrical activity in the brain known as gamma brainwaves helps connect and process information throughout the brain. Research suggests that exposure to a light flickering at 40 Hz may promote gamma-wave brain activity, which could potentially activate cells in the brain to eliminate beta-amyloid plaques that are common in Alzheimer's disease. This one-year observational study will test the ability of an iPad application, also called an app, to improve cognition, function, and quality of life in people with Alzheimer's disease. Participants will use the iPad app on a daily basis to play cognitive games (e.g., Sudoku, Tic-Tac-Toe) while being exposed to light therapy at 40 Hz. Each month, the participant's caregiver will use the app to report on the participant's functioning in daily living activities.
