Heres an essential behind-the-scenes foray into the world of cutting-edge memory research that unveils findings only now available to the general public.pWhen Sue Halpern decided to emulate the first modern scientist of memory, Hermann Ebbinghaus, who experimented on himself, she had no idea that after a day of radioactive testing, her brain would become so hot that leaving through the front door of the lab would trigger the alarm.pThis was not the first time that Halpern had her head examined while researching iCant Remember What I Forgoti, nor would it be the last. Halpern spent years in the company of the neuroscientists, pharmacologists, psychologists, nutritionists, and inventors who are hunting for the genes and molecules, the drugs and foods, the machines, the prosthetics, the behaviors, and the therapies that will stave off Alzheimers and other forms of dementia and keep our minds - and memories - intact.pLike many of us who have had a relative or friend succumb to memory loss, who are getting older, who are hearing statistics about our own chances of falling victim to dementia, or who worry that each lapse of memory portends disease, Halpern wanted to find out what the experts really knew; what the bench scientists were working on; how close science is to a cure, to treatment, and to accurate early diagnosis; and, of course, whether the crossword puzzles, sudokus, and ballroom dancing weve been told to take up can really keep us lucid or if theyre just something to do before the inevitable overtakes us.pBeautifully written, sharply observed, and deeply informed, iCant Remember What I Forgoti is a book full of vital information - and a solid dose of hope.
