Notes:
Have you ever felt a crushing wave of panic when you can't for the life of you remember the name of that actor in the movie you saw last week, or you walk into a room only to forget why you went there in the first place? If you're over 40, you're probably not laughing. You might even be worried that these lapses in memory could be an early sign of Alzheimer's or dementia. In reality, for the vast majority of us, these examples of forgetting are completely normal. Why? Because while memory is amazing, it is far from perfect. Our brains aren't designed to remember every name we hear, plan we make or day we experience. Just because your memory sometimes fails doesn't mean it's broken or succumbing to disease. Forgetting is actually part of being human. Neuroscientist and acclaimed novelist Lisa Genova delves into how memories are made and how we retrieve them.

Book:Every note played:2018 Book
Author: Genova, Lisa
Year: 2018
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Allen & Unwin
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: An accomplished concert pianist, Richard has already suffered many losses in his life: the acrimonious divorce from his ex-wife, Karina; the estrangement of his daughter, Grace; and now, a devastating diagnosis, ALS. The relentlessly progressive paralysis of ALS begins in the cruellest way possible - in his hands. As Richard becomes more and more locked inside his body and can no longer play piano or live on his own, Karina steps in as his reluctant caregiver. Paralysed in a different way, Karina is trapped within a prison of excuses and blame, stuck in an unfulfilling life as an after-school piano teacher, afraid to pursue the path she abandoned as a young woman. As Richard's muscles, voice and breath fade, the two struggle to reconcile their past before it's too late.

A devoted husband, proud father of four adult children, and respected officer, when he begins experiencing bouts of disorganised thinking, uncharacteristic temper outbursts, and strange, involuntary movements, he initially attributes them to stress. Finally, he sees a neurologist and is handed a diagnosis that will change his and his family's lives forever: Huntington's disease, a lethal neurodegenerative disease with no treatment and no cure, which each of his children has a 50% chance of inheriting. While watching her potential future in her father's escalating symptoms, his 21-year-old daughter wrestles with the questions this test imposes on her young life.
