    Older Adults' Forgetfulness Tied To Faulty Brain Rhythms In Sleep. Paper suggests aging can affect memory, and "Atrophy in this area of the brain is a normal consequence of aging." Varying levels of atrophy can occur for people without brain diseases like Alzheimer's.

    Comments? Or did we forget what to say?

    Would repetitive, procedural jobs also contribute to atrophy? How about rhythms thrown off by disruptive work shifts. Always shifting? Or cramming for exams?

    Forgetfulness mitigated by metacognitive skills practice.

    See R.E. Clark at USC for declarative and procedural knowledge, and how metacognitive skills can be used to enhance learning and memory.

    Confused. Can dreams be declarative? Procedural?

    Grand questions I'll have to look up, or consult with Dick Clark at USC.

    Humourous recycling comments, making me wonder if the topic has merit here?

    This would agree with the research article in the OP.

    Alzheimer drug treatments may increase nightmares. Ref: Stephen M. Stahl, et al, (2004) in Examination of nighttime sleep-related problems during double-blind, placebo-controlled trials of galantamine in patients with Alzheimer's disease, Current Medical Research and Opinion, Volume 20, Issue 4.

    When a student crams for exams. Should they cram up to sleep time. Get up refreshed and go to the exam? Or get up early and cram some more before exams? Which is best to avoid forgetfulness?

    Less forgetful? Night before, morning after, or both?

    Ben Franklin, historically one of America's most prolific inventors, used this method, claiming that many of his ideas found substance in dreams. He too believed that if you didn't write it down immediately upon waking up, you would more than likely lose it.

    Do we need to define forgetfulness as a concept, or is it an elaboration of the obvious?
