…What were we talking about again???
OH RIGHT! Scottish scientists at Glasgow-based company CPS Research are launching a study to seek a cure for forgetfulness.
Here's what CPS Research's Dr. Alan Wade had to say about it:
"What we are referring to should not be confused with the serious memory loss that is often associated with early onset dementia. This study is aimed at those who are constantly losing their keys, forgetting people's names or misplacing their glasses rather than anything more serious."
In the study, the researchers will test "whether a smaller dose of the Alzheimer's drug memantine can help tamp down a condition they've given the moniker 'Busy Lifestyle Syndrome,' " which they refer to as "a catch-all for the craziness that comes with everyday modern life: tweets, IMs, texts, e-mails."
Very interesting stuff! We should totally hop a plane to Glasgow to see them at work!
…But hopping a plane would require us to drive to the airport…AND we seem to have misplaced our car keys!
We need your help, CPS Research! Please! LOLz.
