9780071444705: Harvard Medical School Guide to Achieving Optimal Memory (Harvard Medical School Guides)

From a leading expert at one of the world's most respected medical schools--a complete program for achieving optimal memory, for life!

Ever find yourself walking into a room and forgetting why? Having trouble remembering that pesky password or your siblings' birthdays? Don't panic. Memory lapses like these are common, especially after age forty. But memory loss isn't inevitable or irreversible. You can achieve optimal memory at any age--and this book shows you how.

Dr. Aaron P. Nelson, a member of the Harvard Medical School faculty and a clinical neuropsychologist, has helped thousands of patients with memory and other cognitive problems. In his easy-to-understand guide you'll find:

  • How to know if you've got a problem and how to have it evaluated
  • How factors such as smoking, poor nutrition, and a sedentary lifestyle can hurt your memory
  • A complete memory-optimizing program, including mental exercises, nutrition, tips for remembering important things, and more
  • Current and future treatment options for serious memory impairment
