This month's expert is Marilyn Albert, PhD, Johns Hopkins University, Professor of Neurology and Director of the Division of Cognitive Neuroscience.
Dear Dr. Albert,
I'm a 50-something male and lately I'm having difficulty remembering things that used to be at the top of my head: when to pay bills, errands I need to run. My wife thinks it's just aging. She recommends that I get away from the office and exercise more regularly. How will a workout at the gym help my memory? Are there certain kinds of exercise I should focus on?
