Why the Brain and Memory Foundation will help you maintain an alert and youthful memory, no matter what age you are.
In 2008, Dr Allison Lamont, PhD, published her ground-breaking research into age-related memory loss. There was world-wide interest in her findings and she has since addressed conferences in Atlanta, Edinburgh and New Zealand. She identified six key areas of memory skills that were pivotal in maintaining a confident, active and independent lifestyle in later life and it is these that form the basis of our Foundation. This knowledge was too important to keep to ourselves.
Dr Lamont says:
“Your memory is a living part of you that can grow and expand to meet the demands you make of it. Now is the time to build your memory resistance, the ‘cognitive reserve ‘ you need to have to act as a buffer against forgetting and other signs of memory loss that occur without intervention. Just as you know you need to keep physically fit to be healthy, so your brain needs exercise, too.”
Gillian Eadie is an award-winning educator whose career includes 20 years as a school principal in prestigious private schools. She has established the Brain and Memory Foundation with her sister, Dr. Allison Lamont, PhD, MA (Hons), whose research into age-related memory loss has been internationally acclaimed and published by Verlag in 2008.
Gillian says: “I am committed to ensuring that baby boomers have all the information and knowledge they need about memory and the brain. Too many of my friends have parents and relatives who are suffering the consequences of memory loss. It is a tragedy to see people losing their jobs, losing interest and unable to manage their own lives. This does not have to happen to you!
The research of Dr. Allison Lamont, PhD, and others, has shown that brain regrowth occurs at any age. All you need to know, is HOW.”
What do our readers say?
“There are so many pills and potions around which are supposed to help the brain it is refreshing to know that exercising the brain as you would your body is more beneficial with no negative side effects.” Helen
“I’ve recommended your site to many people and they have found the free sessions most helpful” Jan
“I am getting better at remembering people’s names and basically I think my brain was getting lazy in retirement. I think the course was a much needed wake up call.” Ron
“It is a wonderful resource…and Rob and I thank you for the opportunity” Lyn
“Highlighted areas where I have slipped in recent years” Margaret
“I believe it is a very important thing to have available as you age. Physical fitness is given a lot of importance, and mental fitness should be given just as much kudos”. Ken
‘The approach of being sent the emails worked extremely well. It was a great motivator to keep up to date with the sessions otherwise the next one would arrive in the Inbox before you had completed the last one! It also gave a ‘personal’ feel to the course, even though the same emails were going to many people.’ Beth

Gillian and Allison are baby boomers themselves, have addressed international conferences and have achieved book sales of “Seven Second Memory” and other books in USA, UK, Canada, Australia, Europe, Zambia and New Zealand. Jeanie, their mother, had Alzheimer’s and seeing the devastating impact Alzheimer’s has on families has motivated both daughters to urge all baby boomers to take steps, while brain skills are intact in their 50′s, to develop the cognitive reserve that will buffer them against memory loss later in life.
