      Temporary forgetfulness by the French Professor Bruno Dor of the Institute of Memory and Alzheimer’s Disease (IMMA)
      at La Piti̩-Salp̻tri̬re РParis Hospitals. He addresses the subject in a
      rather reassuring way:

      “If anyone is aware of his memory problems, he does not have Alzheimer’s.”

      1. I forget the names of families …
      2. I do not remember where I put some things …

      It often happens in people 60 years and older that they complain that they lack memory.
      “The information is always in the brain, it is the “processor” that is
      lacking.  ”

      This is “Anosognosia” or temporary forgetfulness.

      Half of people 60 and older have some symptoms that are due to age rather than disease.
      The most common cases are:
      – forgetting the name of a person,
      – going to a room in the house and not remembering why we were going there
      – a blank memory for a movie title or actor, an actress,
      – a waste of time searching where we left our glasses or keys …

      After 60 years most people have such a difficulty, which indicates that it is not a disease but rather a characteristic due to the passage of years ..

      Many people are concerned about these oversights hence the importance of the following statement:

      “Those who are conscious of being forgetful have no serious problem of memory.
      “Those who suffer from a memory illness or Alzheimer’s, are not aware of what is happening.”

      Professor Bruno Dubois, Director of IMMA, reassures the majority of people concerned about their oversights:

      “The more we complain about memory loss, the less likely we are to suffer from memory sickness.”

      – Now for a little neurological test:

      Only use your eyes!

      1- Find the C in the table below!

      OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
      OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
      OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
      OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
      OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
      OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
      OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOCOOOOOOOOOOO
      OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
      OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
      OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
      OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
      2- If you have already found the C,

      Then find the 6 in the table below.

      99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999
      99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999
      99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999
      69999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999
      99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999
      99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999

      3- Now find the N in the table below.
      Attention, it’s a little more difficult!

      MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMNMM
      MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
      MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
      MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM
      MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

      If you pass these three tests without problem:
      – you can cancel your annual visit to the neurologist.
      – your brain is in perfect shape!
      – you are far from having any relationship with Alzheimer’s.

      So, share this with your over-60 friends, it can reassure them… 😊
