Purpose:

The main purpose of this study is to determine the electrophysiological effects of cholinergic therapy (cholinesterase inhibitors and transdermal nicotine) in Alzheimer disease. The attempt will be to locate electrophysiological markers and predictors of cognitive and clinical treatment response.

Subjects must either be planning to start daily cholinesterase therapy (e.g. Aricept, Exelon) or willing to try a transdermal nicotine patch for two 8 hour periods.
