I Forgot to Pick up the Milk: Some Surprising Findings on Memory and Aging, and Strategies for Improving Memory Seminar and book signing

Thursday, April 21, 2011 @ 1:30 PM-3:00 PM

Featured Speaker: Mark McDaniel, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology in Arts & Sciences, Washington University in St. Louis and author, Prospective Memory and Memory Fitness: A Guide for Successful Aging

A forgotten telephone number, a familiar face and a name you can’t recall, remembering to pay a due bill, or pick up bread on the way home, remembering the way home– do I remember the way home? Memory is central to our daily lives. Lapses in memory can be distressing, and some– potentially alarming. 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? Washington University psychologist and memory expert, Dr. Mark McDaniel provides insight into what the scientific research suggests will happen to our memory capabilities as we age, explores the memory challenges we all face as we grow older, and offers the layperson suggestions and strategies for improving memory.

Don’t forget to join us for a fascinating look at memory and aging.
