Description
When Sue Halpern decided to emulate the first modern scientist of memory—Hermann Ebbinghaus, who experimented on himself—she had no idea that, after a day of radioactive testing, her brain would become so "hot" that leaving through the front door of the lab would trigger the alarm. Here she explains what the experts really know, what the bench scientists are working on, how close science is to a cure for Alzheimer's disease or even an accurate early diagnosis, and whether the crosswords, sudoku puzzles, and ballroom dancing we've been told to take up can really keep us lucid or if they're just something to do before the inevitable overtakes us.

"Evincing a gift for perfect analogies and supple metaphors, mischievous humor, and righteous skepticism, Halpern is an exceptionally companionable and enlightening guide."—Booklist (starred review)

"Like her fellow New Yorker writer, Malcolm Gladwell, Sue Halpern has the remarkable capacity—genius, actually—to absorb large amounts of complex information and deliver them to the reader in a comprehensible, engaging, page-turning way. In Can't Remember What I Forgot, she travels to the cutting-edge of medical and scientific research about memory and reports back with critical information for all of us now dealing with aging parents and with our own aging. Informative, beautifully written, and hard to put down."—Julia Alvarez
