Description
"The...true story of a team of doctors who--through years of scientific sleuthing and observant care--discover a surprising connection between opioids and memory, one that holds promise and peril for any one of us."--,Publisher's description.
Description
How could you lose your memory overnight, and what would it mean? When neurologist Jed Barash sees the brain scan of a patient with devastating amnesia, it is the beginning of a quest. His team of doctors explored the threat that people who take prescription opioids to treat severe pain may gradually put their memories at risk. This syndrome could shed light on the most elusive memory thief of all, Alzheimer's disease. Aguirre shares new information that can move science closer to an ever-evolving version of the truth. -- adapted from jacket
