An increase in average life expectancy has given rise to a number of pressing health challenges for the 21st century. Age-related memory loss, whether due to a neurodegenerative condition such as Alzheimer’s disease, or as a product of the normal process of aging, is perhaps the most significant of the health problems of old age presently confronting our society. The Preservation of Memory explores non-invasive, empirically sound strategies that can be implemented to ensure long-lasting and effective retention of information.

The chapters in this volume describe and evaluate both well-established and novel methods for improving and strengthening memory, for people with and without dementia. They also look at ways in which effective detection and care can be implemented, and describe empirical findings that can be translated into everyday practice. The contributors take a multidisciplinary approach, motivated by the desire to look beyond and across boundaries to find new areas of knowledge and new opportunities.

The Preservation of Memory will be useful reading for students and researchers focusing upon memory, aging and dementia, and also for mental health practitioners, social workers, and carers of persons living with dementia or other memory impairments.

Review:

I thoroughly enjoyed The Preservation of Memory. The central question of how we can preserve memory function as we age and/or develop cognitive impairment is one of central importance to a range of researchers, clinicians, and individuals. The broad coverage of a range of topics provides a unique multi-faceted perspective, making the book relevant and accessible to a wide-ranging readership. - Stefan Teipel, Department of Psychosomatic Medicine, University of Rostock, and DZNE Rostock, Germany

"The Preservation of Memory provides a useful overview of research literature (both theory and practice) on aging and cognitive impairment. The volume reflects a distinct multidisciplinarity with contributions from scholars of cognitive psychology, aging, neuroscience, and cognitive neuroscience." - G. C. Gamst, University of La Verne, CHOICE
