See Alison Flood, "Study claims Agatha Cristie had Alzheimer's: Textual 
analysis detects signs of sharply declining faculties towards the end of 
beloved mystery writer's life", Guardian, for Friday, 3 April 2009, 
www.guardian.co.uk/books/2009/apr/03/agatha-christie-alzheimers-research. 
This research was carried out by Ian Lancashire (professor of English 
and a member of Humanist, of course) and Graeme Hirst (computational 
linguist), both at Toronto.
