Are we our memories? How we lose them and how we keep them.

The CRAM Podcast ~ Extraordinary Ideas Unleashed

02-11-2023 • 48 mins

What is the meaning of memory? Imagine waking up one day with no memory from the time you were 15. That’s what happened to a woman in the Maritimes. She went into cardiac arrest and was in a coma for three weeks. She was 29 at the time but when she awoke, she was a child again.

It’s such an incredible story that I reached out to Dr. Howard Chertkow, a cognitive neurologist. I wanted to find out how this could happen, and to explore more about memory’s function, how we can preserve it, and how it affects who we are.
