In her new book Remember, neuroscientist Lisa Genova explores the science behind why we forget and remember in daily life, and what happens to our memories in aging and Alzheimer’s. Being Patient will speak with Genova, who has authored novels including Still Alice, about the powers and limitations of our cognitive functions — and steps we can take to not only improve our relationship with memories, but also to enhance our ability to remember.
If you find our articles and interviews helpful, please consider becoming a supporting member of our community. Frustrated by the lack of an editorially independent source of information on brain health and Alzheimer’s disease, we decided to create Being Patient. We are a team of dedicated journalists covering the latest research on Alzheimer’s, bringing you access to the experts and elevating the patient perspective on what it’s like to live with dementia.
