Memory Loss

Nov. 18, 2008

We start to misplace car keys or forget the names of people we rarely see.  But sometimes forgetfulness is an early sign of serious conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease.  In this lecture, neurologist Alan Zacharias, MD, explains normal age-related forgetfulness, abnormal memory loss and the diagnosis and treatment of dementia.
