Dunkin, M. A. (2011, September 9). Memory Loss. WebMD. https://www.webmd.com/brain/memory-loss
In this article Dunkin explains what memory loss is, the different factors that contribute to memory loss, such as: Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs.) drug use, alcohol use, tobacco use, certain medications, sleep deprivation, depression, dementia, certain diseases, and stress. She goes on to explain briefly some of the diagnostic testing that goes into diagnosing memory loss and finding the root causes. Dunkin further explains some of the treatments that are available to combat memory loss, as well as restoring some memories in cases, where it may be applicable.
I chose this article and the author, because the article is written exceptionally well, and she has journalistic experience covering a wide range of topics and is well versed. She has written for several different publications and is an accomplished author. In addition to her own credentials, her article was reviewed and approved by Dr. Christopher Melinosky, who currently an assistant professor at the University of South Florida and is also employed with Lehigh Valley Health Network-Cedarcrest. He is a graduate of Penn State College of medicine. And completed his internship in internal medicine, residency in neurology, and fellowship in neurocritical care at the University of Maryland Medical Center/Shock Trauma. He is board certified in neurology, and UCNS certified in neurocritical care. (WebMD, 2021)
The Human Memory | What It Is, How It Works & How It Can Go Wrong. (2021, July 8). The Human Memory. https://human-memory.net/
This is more than just an article; this is an entire website devoted to memory. According to this website:” Our memory is located not in one particular place in the brain but is instead a brain-wide process in which several different areas of the brain act in conjunction with one another (sometimes referred to as distributed processing.) For example, the simple act of riding a bike is actively and seamlessly reconstructed by the brain from many different areas: the memory of how to operate the bike comes from one area, the memory of how to get from here to the end of the block comes from another, the memory of biking safety rules from another, and that nervous feeling when a car veers dangerously close, comes from still another. Each element of a memory (sights, sounds, words, emotions) is encoded in the same part of the brain that originally created that fragment (visual cortex, motor cortex, language area, etc), and recall of a memory effectively reactivates the neural patterns generated during the original encoding. Thus, a better image might be that of a complex web, in which the threads symbolize the various elements of a memory, that join at nodes or intersection points to form a whole rounded memory of a person, object or event. This kind of distributed memory ensures that even if part of the brain is damaged, some parts of an experience may remain. Neurologists are only beginning to understand how the parts are reassembled into a coherent whole.”
This website has a lot of valuable information on memory, memory processes, the correlation between the brain and memory, as well as memory disorders. They pull from various reputable websites, books, articles, and videos in order to share an extensive database of information. Although there doesn’t appear to be any authors listed, this website has been in operation since 2010, and I believe that it will be an invaluable tool when writing about memory.
