We understand that you worry about losing your memory and fear getting dementia. Each of our films answers a key question related to brain health and dementia that will increase your understanding of how memory works, allay your fears or inspire you to consider your brain health and take actions that will improve the quality of your life. www.freedemliving.com Brought to you by the NEIL Programme www.tcd.ie/neuroscience/neil The NEIL Program aims to develop, evaluate and deliver NeuroEnhancement to older people worldwide. Failing cognitive function prevents millions of older adults from living independently. Our Goal is to enable independent living and improve quality of life by: conducting research aimed at dementia prevention and cognitive enhancement; transforming this knowledge into empirically grounded interventions; and using this information to educate and empower older adults to maintain their cognitive function for as long as possible. See www.tcd.ie/neuroscience/neil for further information. Enhance / Enable / Educate / Empower What Is the Difference between Alzheimer's disease And Dementia? Perhaps you've been confused by these terms in the past or mistakenly taught they were the same thing? Well you wouldn't be alone because knowing the difference between Alzheimer's disease and Dementia can be tricky. But it's actually not too hard to understand. In a nut shell, it's like the difference between shortness of breath and asthma. Shortness of breath is not a specific disease, it can happen to anyone and has many different causes and asthma is just one of them. Likewise, dementia is not one specific disease. It is a combination of symptoms that has many different causes including Alzheimer's disease. Still confused? Think of it like this- You go to your doctor with shortness of breath to find the cause she listens to your chest to see if it's due to asthma or pneumonia. And then she checks your heart to see if your breathlessness is caused by heart failure or a very rapid heartbeat. She even asks if you've been worried because your breathing difficulty could be anxiety related. After her examinations she concludes that your shortness of breath is actually a nut allergy. Similarly when dealing with dementia your doctor needs to figure out the underlying cause and whilst Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia it is not the only one. Dementia can also be caused by vascular changes in the brain, Parkinson disease, Lewy body disease, vitamin deficiencies, thyroid gland problems, chronic brain infections or medications. Even a very deep depression can look like dementia. Which means if someone you love has dementia, it doesn't necessarily mean that they have Alzheimer's disease. This is very important for your doctor to establish because some causes of dementia such as infection, medication reactions an underactive thyroid gland and vitamin deficiencies can be reversible with the right treatment. So figuring out the cause and plan of action could improve your quality of life and that's why if you or a loved one have the symptoms of dementia, you need to see your doctor to find out the underlying cause. 누구나 알츠하이머병과 치매와의 차이에 대해 궁금한 적이 있을 겁니다. 같은 용어라고 생각하셨을 수도 있고요. 그렇게 생각하는 것도 무리는 아닌 것이, 알츠하이머병과 치매의 차이를 구별하는 것은 쉽지 않은 일이기 때문입니다. 그렇다고 이해가 그다지 어려운 것은 아닙니다. 간단히 말하면 호흡 곤란과 천식의 차이와도 같다고 할 수 있죠. 숨이 차다는 것은 질병은 아닙니다. 다양한 원인이 있을 수 있는데 그 중 하나가 바로 천식인 것입니다. 마찬가지로 치매도 특정 질환이 아니라 여러 증상의 조합이며 다양한 원인이 있습니다. 그 원인 중 하나가 알츠하이머 병이죠. 아직도 구분이 어려우신가요? 그럼 이렇게 생각해봅시다. 숨이 차서 병원에 갔다고 생각해보세요. 의사는 그 원인이 천식 또는 폐렴인지 확인하기 위해 가슴에 청진기를 대볼 것입니다. 숨이 찬 것이 심장질환이나 빈맥으로 인한 것인지 알아보기 위해 심장 검사를 할 겁니다. 또는 숨이 찬 것이 불안과 관련이 있는지 보기 위해 걱정거리가 있는지도 물어볼 것입니다. 검사가 끝나고 의사는 견과류 알레르기 때문에 숨이 찼다고 진단합니다. 이처럼, 치매를 진찰할 때도 원인을 알아내야 합니다. 알츠하이머병이 치매의 가장 흔한 원인이긴 하나 유일한 원인은 아닙니다. 치매에 걸리는 또 다른 이유로는 뇌혈관의 변화, 파킨슨병, 레비소체병, 비타민 결핍, 갑상선 질환, 만성 뇌 감염, 약물치료 등을 들 수 있습니다. 때로는 극심한 우울증도 치매와 비슷해 보이죠. 다시 말해, 사랑하는 사람이 치매에 걸렸다고 해서 그 사람이 반드시 알츠하이머병을 앓고 있는 건 아니라는 뜻입니다. 중요한 것은 의사의 정확한 진단을 받는 것입니다. 왜냐하면 뇌 감염, 약물 반응, 갑상선 기능저하 또는 비타민 결핍과 같은 일부 원인들은 적절한 치료를 받으면 고칠 수 있기 때문입니다. 따라서 원인을 찾고 그에 맞게 대처함으로써 보다 나은 삶을 살 수가 있습니다. 그러니 우리 또는 우리가 사랑하는 사람이 치매 증상을 보인다면, 꼭 병원에 가서 숨은 원인을 알아보시기 바랍니다.

Enhance / Enable / Educate / Empower We all love to hear our favourite song, especially when stuck in traffic and even if it has been years since you heard it, the words flood back to you. Yet when it comes to other things it seems far too easy to forget. Like your anniversary or the size of that fish that you caught. So why do something's slip your mind and others don't? When you use your memory you are relying on different parts of your memory network, like an orchestra filled with different instruments. So if you get a question right at the local pub quiz you are using your FACT memory. Tell your best friend about your first kiss, that is your EVENT memory. Fix the leak under your sink your relying on your PROCEDURAL memory. You even have an EMOTIONAL memory which leaves you with a feeling even if you can't remember the details. This is when losing your memory enters the equation. Because even if you do have a memory problem, scientist are discovering that you hold on to your emotional memory. In California, researchers studied 95 people with Dementia, asking their families to recall moments from their lives that gave a strong emotional response. They then checked with family members to confirm the memories were correct and in most cases they were. The person's emotional memory stayed intact even if other parts struggled. And that's important to remember. Even though your Aunt doesn't recall your visit from last week it doesn't mean she has forgotten. She may have a pleasant feeling or an emotional memory. Which is why it is important to keep visiting her and when you do ask her about her childhood because older memories stay with us longer a concept scientists call The Reminisce Bump. Remembering can leave us feeling good, so the next time you visit she will be happy to see you even if she doesn't recognise you. Your memory won't ever go completely. Take comfort, your memory won't ever go completely anymore than taking one instrument from the orchestra won't make it stop. You will remember the felling you had when you first heard then. 좋아하는 노래를 듣는 일은 즐거운 일입니다. 도로가 막힐 때는 더욱 그렇죠. 그리고 그런 노래는 오랫동안 듣지 않았어도 갑자기 가사가 생각나기도 합니다. 그러나 다른 것들은 너무 쉽게 잊어버리는 것 같습니다. 예를 들면 기념일이나 또는 옛날에 잡았던 생선의 크기 같은 것들 말이죠. 그러면, 왜? 어떤 것은 잊혀지고, 어떤 것은 기억에 남을까요? 우리는 기억할 때 서로 다른 기억체계를 사용합니다. 마치 여러 종류의 악기로 구성된 오케스트라처럼요. 예를 들면,동네 식당에서 상금이 걸린 문제를 풀 때는 “사실” 기억을 사용합니다. 친한 친구에게 첫 키스를 말해 줄 때는 “사건” 기억에 의존한 것입니다. 물이 새는 싱크대를 고칠 때는 ‘절차’ 기억이 사용됩니다. 우리에겐 또한 “감정” 기억도 있습니다. 감정 기억 때문에 우리는 자세한 사건의 내용을 기억하지 못해도 감정을 기억할 수 있습니다. 이것이 바로 우리가 기억 상실에 대해 생각해 보아야 하는 이유입니다. 과학자들은 우리의 기억력에 문제가 있어도 감정기억은 남아있다고 이야기 합니다. 캘리포니아에서 95명의 치매 환자들을 대상으로 한 연구에서는 치매 환자에게 강한 감정을 남긴 삶의 순간을 기억하게 했습니다. 그리고 나서 가족에게 그 기억이 맞는지 확인해보았습니다. 대부분의 경우, 기억은 정확했습니다. 다른 것은 기억이 잘 안 나더라도 감정 기억은 그대로 남아있었습니다 이와 같은 사실을 기억하는 매우 중요합니다. 왜냐하면 친척이 누가 방문했는지 기억하지 못하더라도, 아주 잊어버린 게 아니라는 것을 말해주기 때문입니다. 환자는 아직도 좋은 느낌이나 감정 기억을 기억하고 있을 수 있습니다. 그래서 계속 방문하는 것이 중요합니다. 방문하면 어린 시절에 대해서는 물어보세요. 왜냐하면 옛날 기억들은 더 오래 남기 때문입니다. 그리고 과학자들은 이것을 ‘회상 절정’이라고 부릅니다. 더욱 중요한 것은 기억하는 것 자체가 즐거운 감정과 연결되어 다음에 방문할 때는 우리의 방문을 반길 겁니다. 비록 우리를 알아보지 못할지라도 말입니다. 그러니 마음의 여유를 가지세요. 누구도 완벽하게 기억을 유지할 수는 없습니다. 악기 몇 개가 없어도 오케스트라 연주는 계속됩니다. 우리는 우리가 즐겨 듣는 노래를 기억할 수도 있고 그 노래를 처음 들었을 때의 그 느낌을 기억할 수도 있으니까요.

As you grow older it is easy to jump to conclusions about your memory. Especially after you have lost your house keys, again. Or drawn a blank when you are faced with someone you know you have met before. These small lases of memory and attention can feel like the end of the world. It is important to remember that your brain is a very complex organ. Forgetting the odd word or name doesn't mean you are getting Dementia and yet these lapses in memory could mean something. Many different things can affect your memory; over the counter or prescription medications, excessive use of alcohol, an underlying medical condition that you may not be aware of and even psychological causes such as stress and anxiety or depression. When you are stressed or feel depressed your brain releases a hormone called cortisol into your blood stream. High levels of cortisol can impair the cells in your hippocampus, a part of the brain vital for making memories. This can make it more difficult for you to create new memories or retrieve old ones. So you may well have a memory problem but it doesn't necessarily mean that you have Dementia. You need to be aware of your brain health and most importantly see your family doctor about your memory concerns. A doctor can help identify any underlying conditions that might be affecting your memory. Or help you manage stress or anxiety in the healthy way if that is the issue. Or change medication that may be causing your memory problems. Some causes of Dementia are treatable even reversible. Which is added incentive for you to book an appointment with your doctor for a memory check. Your doctor might not bring the bad news you have been dreading. “자꾸 뭔가를 깜빡 해요. 저도 혹시 치매일까요?” 나이가 들면 자신의 기억력에 대해 속단하기 쉽습니다. 특히 집 열쇠를 반복해서 잃어버린다든가, 상대가 구면이란 걸 알면서도 누군지 생각나지 않는다든가 하는 사소한 착오들을 겪고 나면 하늘이 무너지는 듯한 기분이 들기도 하죠. 하지만 잊지 말아야 할 점이 있습니다. 뇌는 매우 복잡한 기관이고, 생소한 단어나 이름을 잊어버린다고 해서 치매라고 볼 수는 없다는 겁니다. 때로는 이런 깜박거림이 다른 것을 의미할 수 있습니다. 우리의 기억력에 영향을 미치는 요인은 다양하니까요. 각종 일반 의약품이나 처방약품 과도한 음주, 우리 자신도 알지 못하는 공존 질병 등을 그 예로 들 수 있죠. 게다가 심리적 요인들도 기억력에 영향을 미칩니다. 기분이 우울하거나 계속해서 스트레스를 받게 되면 뇌는 코티졸 호르몬을 혈관 내로 분비합니다. 코티졸 수치가 높으면 해마세포를 손상시킬 수 있는데 해마는 기억력에 매우 중요한 기관입니다. 그렇게 되면 새로운 기억을 형성하거나 기존의 기억을 되살리기가 어려워지죠. 우리의 기억력에 문제가 있을 수 있습니다. 그렇다고 해서 이것이 치매 때문이라고 볼 수 없습니다. 평소 우리 뇌의 건강 상태를 잘 알아야 하는데, 무엇보다 중요한 건 기억력 문제에 관해 주치의와 상담하는 것입니다. 의사는 기억력에 영향을 미칠 수 있는 다른 질환을 알아낼 수 있고 스트레스나 불안이 문제가 된다면 건강한 방법으로 이들을 관리할 수 있도록 도와줄 수도 있습니다. 또는 기억력을 변화시킬 수 있는 약물을 변경 또는 중단할 수 있습니다. 어떤 치매는 치료 가능하며, 심지어 완치될 수도 있음을 기억하세요. 이것이 바로 의사를 만나 기억력 검사를 해야 하는 또 다른 이유이기도 하죠 그리고 다소 안심이 되는 것은 의사가 당신이 두려워해 왔던 나쁜 소식을 전하지 않을 수도 있기 때문입니다.

Enhance / Enable / Educate / Empower We all know that high cholesterol isn't good for our body, along with high blood pressure and being overweight but what you might not know is that not only these health concerns shorten the life of your body they can affect your brain function. The more scientists study our brains the more they are finding that how well it works is intricately tied to the health of our body. For example just 30 minutes of aerobic exercise, 5 times per week can keep your brain sharp. Physical exercise not only helps your heart it can also increase the size of your hippocampus, the area of your brain that is crucial for making memories. Physical exercise also generates a chemical called B.D.N.F- brain derived neurotropic factor. This acts like fertiliser for the brain, encouraging the growth of neuro connections and new brain cells. So staying active is important but not just physically active. Staying socially active as well especially as you get older. There is growing evidence to suggest that people who can avoid getting lonely reduce their risk of cognitive decline. There is one last thing you need to do to keep your brain healthy. Keep it active! Three top brain tips to keep it stimulated; 1. Challenge yourself- the satisfaction that you get from challenging yourself, slightly beyond your comfort zone actually changes your brain chemistry which makes you feel more positive. 2. Change yourself- Novelty helps your brain. It is good to experience new things, take on new situations and meet new people. 3. Learn something new- This encourages the growth of new brain cells and stimulates the connections between them. Which has its own benefits, stronger brain connections also help to keep your brain healthy. So don't let age stop you from doing the things you love. Think young because if you look after your brain now it will make you proud for years to come. “뇌 건강을 위해 무엇을 해야 할까요” 높은 콜레스테롤 수치가 고혈압이나 과체중과 마찬가지로 우리 몸에 좋지 않다는 것은 잘 알려진 사실입니다. 반면 높은 콜레스테롤이 수명을 단축할 뿐 아니라 뇌 기능에 영향을 미칠 수 있다는 것은 잘 모르고 있습니다. 과학자들이 뇌를 연구하면 할수록, 뇌와 신체가 복잡하게 얽혀있다는 사실이 더 분명해지고 있습니다. 한 예로, 단 30분씩만이라도 일주일에 5번 유산소운동을 하면 두뇌의 명석함을 유지할 수 있죠. 운동은 심장기능을 도와주고 뇌에서 기억 형성에 중요한 역할을 하는 해마를 증가시킬 수 있습니다. 여기서 끝이 아닙니다. 운동을 하면 뇌신경영양인자인 BDNF라 불리는 화학물질이 만들어지는데 이 물질은 뇌에게 비료와도 같아서 신경 연결과 뇌세포 생성을 촉진합니다. 그러므로 적극적인 생활이 중요합니다. 그런데 이런 신체적으로 적극적인 것뿐 아니라 특히 나이가 들수록 적극적인 사회적 활동 역시 중요합니다. 외로움을 피할 수 있는 사람일수록 인지기능 감소 위험이 줄어든다는 증거가 많아지고 있기 때문입니다. 모두가 그렇다고 하는 것은 좋은 것입니다. 이제 뇌를 건강하게 유지하는 데 필요한 마지막 한 가지를 알려드리겠습니다. 뇌를 적극적으로 사용하세요. 그래서 순서는 상관없이 뇌를 자극하는 가장 좋은 방법 3가지를 소개합니다. 첫째, 스스로에게 도전하세요. 약간 어려운 것을 극복했을 때 얻는 만족감이 뇌의 화학 작용을 변화시켜서 더욱 긍정적인 기분을 느끼게 합니다. 둘째, 스스로를 변화시키세요. 새로움은 뇌에 도움이 됩니다. 그래서 새로운 것과 새로운 상황을 경험하고 새로운 사람들을 만나면 좋습니다. 셋째, 새로운 것을 배우세요. 새로운 것을 배우면 뇌세포의 생성과 연결을 촉진합니다. 그리고 세포들이 강하게 연결될수록 뇌는 스스로 강해집니다. 그러니 나이 때문에 하고 싶은 일을 포기하지 마시고, 젊게 생각하세요. 지금부터라도 뇌를 돌보고 뇌를 활동적으로 유지한다면, 다가올 미래에는 스스로가 자랑스러울 것입니다.

If you can barely walk on a sore ankle or if an ear ache has gotten so bad you can't think straight. But should you ever go to see the doctor about your memory? There are some types of forgetfulness that don't carry a health warning. Forgetting were you put your keys for the third time in a week is not necessarily something you need to visit your doctor about. Nor forgetting the name of a person you have just met or even someone you haven't seen in years. Names can slip anyone's mind and there is no reason to see a doctor for that. There are times when you or someone you know might benefit from chatting to their doctor about memory. Like if you get disorientated about where you are or what time of the day it is. Or get lost in a place that you have been familiar with for years. Or start repeating the same story every day without realising it. Deciding when these memory problems warrant a visit to your doctor can be tricky but here is a good question you can ask. Are the problems interfering with your life at home or at work? Are they affecting your quality of life? If yes, then it might be worth chatting to your doctor because your doctor may be able to help. For this reason, some memory problems are treatable and even reversible. This is because it may be a symptom of an underlying condition such as; stress, excessive alcohol use, anxiety or depression, even a medication that you're taking. So just because you have a memory problem doesn't mean that you have a brain disease or that it is permanent. If you are concerned a simple blood test as well as a physical and a quick memory test from your doctor could clarify the situation. Which is a small discomfort for the sake of your brains good health! “언제 제 기억력에 문제가 있다고 봐야 할까요?” 의사를 만나는 것이 최선일 때가 있습니다. 발목이 아파 걷기가 힘들다든가, 귀가 너무 아파서 정신을 차릴 수 없다든가 하는 경우죠. 그런데 뭔가를 자꾸 깜빡할 때도 병원에 가야 할까요? 글쎄요, 건강에 이상이 없어도 건망증이 생길 수 있습니다. 일주일에 세 번 열쇠 둔 곳을 잊어버렸다고 해서 꼭 병원에 갈 필요는 없습니다. 골프 클럽에서 막 만났던 사람의 이름이나 얼굴이 기억나지 않을 때도 마찬가집니다. 몇 년째 보지 못한 사람에 대해서도 물론이고요. 그런 건 누구라도 잊어버릴 수 있으니, 굳이 의사를 찾아갈 이유는 없죠. 하지만 기억력 문제에 관해 의사와 이야기해봐야 할 만한 경우들이 있습니다. 자기가 있는 곳이 어딘지, 지금이 몇 시인지 잘 모르겠다든가 오랫동안 익숙했던 장소에서 길을 잃는다든가 매일 똑같은 얘길 반복해서 하면서도 그것을 알아차리지 못한다든가 하는 경우입니다. 기억력 문제를 놓고 병원방문 여부를 결정하는 일은 어려운 일입니다. 이러한 판단을 도와줄 유용한 질문을 알려드리죠. 그 문제로 인해 가정 또는 직장 생활에 지장이 있거나 삶의 질에 영향을 받고 있나요? 만약 그렇다면 의사와 상담해볼 필요가 있을 것입니다. 기억력 문제의 일부는 치료법이 존재하고, 완치까지도 가능하므로 의사가 도움을 줄 수 있을 테니까요. 다른 동반 상태로 인한 증상인 경우를 말합니다. 예를 들면 스트레스, 과도한 음주, 불안이나 우울증 그리고 복용 중인 약물 등을 들 수 있죠. 따라서, 기억력이 안 좋다는 것만으로 뇌 질환을 갖고 있다거나 그러한 상황이 영구적이리라는 걸 뜻하진 않습니다. 걱정이 된다면 신체 검사, 속성 기억력 테스트 그리고 간단한 혈액 검사를 받아보시기 바랍니다. 약간 번거롭더라도 뇌의 건강을 위해서 말이죠.
