The there is no getting away from the fact is that memory reduces as we age. I used to remember everything important but in the last few years have had trouble linking faces and names and I have definitely got more forgetful. I am in my mid-fifties so I am perhaps approaching that senior moment territory but I did start to investigate whether there was something I could be doing now to improve my memory and help with these memory lapses.
First off, medical research has found that the adult brain is still able to form new memory. You may be one of these people who believes that a person’s mental ability is at its peak as an early adult and then it’s all downhill from there but that thinking has not now scientifically shown to be the case. The latest thinking is that with some effort you can boost your memory power whatever your age.
