A Proven Plan for Protecting Your Memory--At Any Age, At Any Time

You've probably taken steps to protect your finances, your health, and your family. Isn't it time to protect your memories? Science is exploding with new discoveries related to the brain, aging, and memory--discoveries that prove the actions you take today impact your memory for decades to come. Dr. Majid Fotuhi, one of the foremost experts in memory loss and Alzheimer's disease, outlines an action plan to improve mental agility and prevent memory loss. The Memory Cure includes:

  • A dynamic 10 step memory protection plan
  • Encouraging updates in the field of cognitive research
  • The truth behind popular beliefs about memory loss and aging
  • A comprehensive resource section including information about clinical trials

"Dr. Fotuhi is a gifted teacher, and it comes through in his writing. The language is clear; complex theories and scientific findings are presented for the intelligent layperson in an accessible manner."

--Michael Rosenblatt, M.D.

Dean, Tufts University School of Medicine

"Dr. Fotuhi's book...provides a feast of up-to-date, relevant information on the causes and consequences of Alzheimer's disease and related conditions--and, most importantly,

minimizing one's risk of developing them--in a form that is very digestible."

--Jason Brandt, Ph.D., ABPP(CN)

Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences

Director, Division of Medical Psychology

The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine

"The book is a message of hope and reassurance for laymen, especially aging members of the baby-boom generation alarmed by all the attention being paid to Alzheimer's and imagining worst-case scenarios for themselves."

--Washington Times

Dr. Majid Fotuhi, one of the world's foremost experts in the field of Alzheimer's Disease and brain function, outlines a highly effective plan to guard against memory loss.
