• Memory as Medicine: Botanicals Affecting Cognition, Memory and Sense of Self

Speaker: Kenneth Proefrock, ND  Learning and memory are two of the most magical capabilities of our mind. Learning is the biological process of acquiring new knowledge about the world, and memory is the process of retaining and reconstructing that knowledge over time. Most of our knowledge of the world and most of our skills are not innate but learned. Thus, we are who we are in large part because of what we have learned and what we remember and forget. In this discussion, we examine the molecular, cellular, and circuit mechanisms that underlie how memories are made, stored, retrieved, and lost and the myriad ways in which nutrition, exercise and botanical medicine are able to impact those processes.
