 Ever forget where you left your keys or walked into a room and couldn’t remember why? Worry about a family member or friend’s increasing forgetfulness? Wonder if exercises can really improve your memory?

Guest speaker and neuropsychologist, Brad Crenshaw, will provide insights and answers to these questions, and many others, at the popular monthly Speakers Series sponsored by Northampton Neighbors and the Senior Center. He will describe what memory is, what it is not and how it works; how the various demands on memory affect its functioning over time; and what pathological memory changes look like. He will also discuss what we can do to improve our memories as we age.

Brad Crenshaw received his MFA and PhD in English from the University of California, Irvine. He later obtained a second PhD in Clinical Psychology and Neurosciences from the University of Massachusetts. He has worked as a neuropsychologist for many years in the Neuropsychology Service at Baystate Medical Center and then in the Massachusetts Department of Developmental Services.

A Q and A will follow the presentation. The Speaker Series features entertaining and educational presentations by prominent local and regional personalities. It is free and open to the public.
