Institute for Neurological Research
The Institute for Neurological Research (INR) is a private medical clinic in Los Angeles, California which claims to have developed a "treatment method for selected patients with Alzheimer's Disease who have failed to adequately respond to conventional medical treatment." News reports (e.g. ) have described this in more sensational terms as being able to "reverse the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease in minutes".
The treatment is referred to as "The Tobnick Method™", and it has received several US patents as well as discussion (apparently positive) in a legitimate peer-reviewed neurology journal.
