LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- More than 5 million Americans live with Alzheimer's disease. There is no cure, but now there is a new test that can tell you if you have it.

News 3's Mackenzie Warren has the story of one local man who is turning to Las Vegas' own revolutionary brain center for some answers.
