Thursday, November 21, 2019

Rich O’Brien, MD, PhD, the Disque D. Deane University Professor of Neurology and chair of the Department of Neurology, recently appeared on the Headscratchers podcast for the Duke University School of Medicine. In the podcast, O'Brien discusses why a person might be able to recall a retirement party they attended thirty years ago, but not what they had for lunch that day--and how to tell the normal memory loss that comes with aging from a memory disorder such as Alzheimer's disease.
