Overview

Do all adults experience memory difficulties as they age? What is the difference between normal memory change and the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease? Is it possible to stem-or even reverse-memory decline? This timely book is a comprehensive guide for the growing number of adults who are eager to learn how aging affects memory and what can or cannot be done about it. Gilles Einstein and Mark McDaniel, widely respected for their research and lectures on memory, explain how memory works and how memory processes change with age. Based on up-to-date and rigorous scientific evidence, they also offer¨ techniques and strategies for improving memory in everyday life ¨ alternatives to hard-to-use mnemonic techniques ¨ physical and mental exercises that can enhance memory ¨ a review of drugs and nutritional supplements touted to enhance memory ¨ a complete discussion of Alzheimer's disease, its symptoms and risk factors, along with guidance for caretakers ¨ and much more.
