Dear Friends,

This week, CNLM Director Dr. Michael Yassa was featured in CNN’s Chasing Life podcast with Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s Chief Medical Correspondent and Associate Professor of Neurosurgery at Emory University.

Through their engaging dialogue, we learn that memories are imperfect treasures “dear to our hearts but not necessarily accurate snapshots of reality.” Dr. Yassa talks about how memories are stored, why we forget, and what we’ve gotten wrong about how it’s supposed to work.

The episode, What Memories Are Made of, is free and available wherever you listen to podcasts.

Psst — Drs. Gupta and Yassa also give tips to prevent memory loss as we age.
