Lisa is joined by Andrew E. Budson and Dr. Elizabeth Kensinger who talk about their book, Why We Forget and How To Remember Better: The Science Behind Memory .
Many of us wonder how we can best overcome one of the human experience’s most frustrating phenomena: forgetting. Why do we forget things we want to remember, and remember things we’d rather forget? How can we be certain about something we remember—and somehow be wrong about it? Why is it so difficult to remember people's names? How can you study hard for an exam but not be able to recall the material on the test? In WHY WE FORGET, Dr. Andrew Budson and Dr. Elizabeth Kensinger address these questions and more, using their years of experience to guide readers into better memory.
Written by two experts with years of clinical and research-based experience, Andrew E. Budson is Chief of Cognitive & Behavioral Neurology at the VA Boston Healthcare System and Associate Director of Boston University’s Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center, and Elizabeth A. Kensinger is a Full Professor and Chairperson of the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at Boston College.
WHY WE FORGET addresses many of the long-debated questions in neuroscience that may have different answers than expected.
