Your Fantastic Mind


Season 1, Episode 7 of 9

YFM delves into the science of memory - how it works, how we can retain it and why we lose it. On a trip to Chicago, a group of fascinating research participants are highlighted - elderly nuns who are helping scientists discover the ingredients to a long, healthy dementia-free life. The episode also features the first study in the world that uses flickering lights built into sunglasses to remove amyloid plaque from the brain, and we share a touching love story of a neurologist who is caring for his wife with Alzheimer's, finding joy and peace through their shared love of music.
