If you’re like most people, you have some complaints about your memory. Perhaps you walked into a room and forgot why you were there, or you can’t think of a name of an acquaintance even though you met her half a dozen times...or you see a movie, and two weeks later you can’t remember the title, or parts of the plot. It can be a very frustrating experience! With more than 41 million Americans over the age of 65 in the United States, the question becomes how much (or, perhaps, what type) of memory loss is to be expected as one gets older and what should trigger a visit to the doctor. On today’s show, we will delve into What’s normal, what’s not, and what to do about it. Our guest is Dr. Andrew Budson, the author of Seven Steps to Managing Your Memory. And he’s here today to help us address key concerns about memory loss. Dr. Budson is a professor of neurology at Boston University, and lecturer of neurology at Harvard Medical school. His career combines education, research, and clinical care for those with memory disorders. For show notes, visit www.kathysmith.com/podcast.
