Are you losing your mind? -- Wrinkles of the mind -- Mental wear and tear -- MCI and the prevention of Alzheimer's disease -- Saving your mind -- Oxygen damage and the brain: to E or not to E? -- Inflammation and the brain -- The brain-diet connection -- Learn now, age later -- Physical fitness and brain health -- The mind and body on estrogen -- Testing and preserving your mind -- Stressing the brain -- The memory stress test -- The memory improvement program -- Age proof your mind -- The future promise of an Alzheimer's cure.
Whether readers experience occasional lapses ("Where did I put my car keys?" "Why did I open this closet door?") or are concerned about a family tendency toward Alzheimer's, Tan offers information, exercises, resources and advice to help them sort out whether their memory loss is minor or indicates a deeper problem. The author, who directs a Boston memory disorders clinic, explores the connection between diet and memory and explains the effects Vitamin E, estrogen and alcohol may have on the brain.
