I have a book out that I have edited for Routledge (T&F), and I wanted to tell you about it.
The title is The Preservation of Memory and it collects works from a number of scholars (me included, I am no slouch!) in the UK and USA researching the overlap between memory, aging and dementia. You can click on the title above to read more about the book and its contents.
This is from the blurb: “An increase in average life expectancy has given rise to a number of pressing health challenges for the 21st century. Age-related memory loss, whether due to a neurodegenerative condition such as Alzheimer’s disease, or as a product of the normal process of aging, is perhaps the most significant of the health problems of old age presently confronting our society. The Preservation of Memory explores non-invasive, empirically sound strategies that can be implemented to ensure long-lasting and effective retention of information.”
I am pretty excited about it, and so are Oskar and Penelope!
