Creative Aging and Memory Impairment

Here are two inspiring posts on creative aging and memory impairment.

The first is an interview on baby boomers and creative aging with Dr. Robert Butler, founder of the National Institute of Aging and former CEO of the Longevity Institute. Excerpts from this interview appear in the documentary film “I Remember Better When I Paint.”

The second is an article from The Atlantic entitled “Creative Aging: The Emergence of Artistic Talents” by Richard C. Senelick, MD. This article looks at how “depending which part of the brain is affected, different skills will be preserved or impaired in various types of cognitive decline and dementia. This gradual reformation is what may allow the emergence of new artistic abilities.”
