There is one reference on PubMed to a paper, here's the conclusion:
The effect of coconut oil on overall health (including Alzheimer disease) and serum cholesterol is highly debated. The Alzheimer's Association states, "A few people have reported that coconut oil helped ... but there's never been any clinical testing of coconut oil for Alzheimer's, and there's no scientific evidence that it helps."2 However, many patients still opt to try coconut oil. Advise patients to use nonhydrogenated coconut oil, and monitor serum cholesterol regularly.
