Ever find yourself walking into a room and forgetting why? Having trouble remembering that pesky password or your siblings' birthdays? Don't panic.

  • How to know if you've got a problem and how to have it evaluated
  • How factors such as smoking, poor nutrition, and a sedentary lifestyle can hurt your memory
  • A complete memory-optimizing program, including mental exercises, nutrition, tips for remembering important things, and more
  • Current and future treatment options for serious memory impairment
