University of California, Irvine study explores the characteristics of people with dementia and their retention of autobiographical, emotional memories. By interviewing people with dementia and family members who could corroborate memories, researchers explored two questions:
- Do people with dementia have emotionally influenced memory?
- If some do and some don’t, how do we identify the ones that do?
Guest Speaker is Aileen Wiglesworth, Ph.D., Director of Research, Center of Excellence on Elder Abuse and Neglect and Associate Clinical Professor, Family Medicine, at UC Irvine School of Medicine.
