Ron Reagan suggests in a book to be released next week that his father started showing possible symptoms of Alzheimer’s during his time in the White House.

According to U.S. News & World Report, Reagan says he noticed signs of confusion and “an out-of-touch president” during the 1984 campaign, and again two years later.

The younger Reagan’s account, in “My Father at 100,” conflicts with reports from the president’s doctors, who said they saw no evidence of the disease during Reagan’s presidency.

Reagan told the country of his diagnosis in 1994.

Ron Reagan also writes that his father had brain surgery after being bucked from a horse, six months after leaving the White House. This, too, has been denied by associates of the president, U.S. News reports.
