Memory changes happen to all of us. Around the age of 50+.
- Forgetting names
- Forgetting why you came into a room
- Forgetting if you have closed the garage
- Losing car keys …..
Is it Alzheimer’s?
The good news from neuroscience is that for most of us, occasional forgetting is most likely not dementia.
But it is a wake-up call.
It is a reminder that the brain needs exercise and challenges just as much as the rest of the body.
That’s why you need 7-Day Brain Boost Plan
About the authors:
In 2008, Dr Allison Lamont, PhD (Psychol), MA (Hons), CPsychol (BPS), NZPsS, NZAC, ASSBI, APS published her ground-breaking research into age-related memory loss (available, Amazon). World-wide interest in her findings led her to address conferences in Atlanta, Edinburgh and New Zealand. She identified six key areas of memory skill that were pivotal in maintaining a confident, active and independent lifestyle throughout life and it is these skills that are the focus of the books, neurogames and training courses. Dr. Lamont is a counsellor and conducts the Auckland Memory Clinic
Gillian Eadie, M.Ed, BA, DipTchg, LTCL, Churchill Fellow, HFITPNZ, Dr. Lamont’s sister, is whose career includes speech pathology, teaching at all compulsory levels and 20 years as a school principal in prestigious independent schools. She established the Memory Foundation with Dr. Lamont and brought her expert skills in teaching and learning to the creation of the brain tools available today. Gillian is now with The University of Auckland. and chaired the Human Participants Ethics Committee for 2.5 years.
Memory Foundation articles, books, neurogames and memory programmes are scientifically based and clinically effective. They focus on the key skills needed to keep brains active, alert and growing at any age, with a particular emphasis on the 40+ age group. Developing cognitive reserve while brain skills are intact in one’s 40’s will help create the buffer needed to push back against brain overload and memory loss later in life.
Gillian and Allison have addressed international conferences and their resources have sold in 40 countries.
