10th May 2010 – Memories are Made of This

Professor Alistair Burns (MBChB, FRCP, FRCPsych, MD, MPhil, DHMSA) is Deputy Dean for Clinical Affairs and Professor of Old Age Psychiatry at The University of Manchester in the UK and an Honorary Consultant Old Age Psychiatrist in the Manchester Mental Health and Social Care Trust (MMHSCT). He will join us to discuss how memories are formed and how and where are they stored.

  • What goes wrong with the process during ageing, if anything? (as my personal experience suggests it’s my retrieval process which is deteriorating most)
  • How do we retrieve memories?
  • How come smell seems to be a potent memory jogger?
  • What goes wrong with the retrieval processes during ageing?
  • What is Alzheimer’s disease and what can be done about it and memory loss during ageing?
