Summary "Once thought to involve only the storage and retrieval of information, memory is now known to be an incredibly complex process, susceptible to similarly complex diseases and disorders that can cause its failure. Today, millions of people suffer from some kind of memory loss, whether it be simply forgetting where one has placed everyday objects or the severe memory impairment associated with Alzheimer's disease. In one comprehensive volume, The Encyclopedia of Memory and Memory Disorders, Second Edition discusses every aspect - from the most basic to the most complex - of this serious health issue." "This revised and updated edition includes key terms, researchers, and theories, as well as possible causes, treatments, and symptoms of memory disorders. Also included are suggestions for how to improve memory and slow down memory loss associated with age."--BOOK JACKET
