Memory Lapses? Forget About It

Writer Max Perry suggests that forgetting something doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a precursor to dementia. “The fact that you can't retrieve the name of that Indian restaurant where you ate last week... doesn't mean that Alzheimer's is imminent,” Perry said. Younger generations, who supposedly have stellar memories, forget details and events all the time. There’s so much information that people have to remember that it is impossible to recall every single detail. “Forget about what you're trying to recall, and it will come to you.”
