14/06/1864 Psychiatrist Alois Alzheimer is born

Alois Alzheimer was a German psychiatrist and neuropathologist known for the first description of what is today called Alzheimer's disease. Alzheimer himself called the condition “presenile dementia.” Although the disease is a serious one, Dr. Alzheimer is the subject of many jokes. For example: "What's the name of that God-damn Swiss doctor who keeps hiding my glasses?"
