The purpose of this study is to determine response to pain in Alzheimer's disease.We plan to study the effect of diffuse noxious inhibitory controls(counterirritation phenomenon)and the autonomic nervous system reaction(reflected by the heart rate) in Alzheimer's disease. The study's hypothesis is that pain perception and autonomic nervous system reaction are altered in Alzheimer's disease.
