Social interaction may delay memory lossMany people enjoy an active social life, but now there is evidence indicating that active social participation may postpone memory loss. As people age, many experience normal age-associated memory impairment which should not be confused with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Age-Associated Memory Impairment may be manifested by difficulty recalling someone’s name or going to the pantry to get something and then forgetting what was wanted. It is related to normal changes in the brain with slower transmission of nerve impulses.
