Stories and embodied memories in dementia

Dementia is a brain disease first resulting in linguistic and cognitive challenges, later on more functions are involved and eventually resulting in death. Storytelling is ubiquitous, important in presenting and negotiating identities and important in understanding other people and the world. Professor Lars-Christer Hydén's research on dementia therefore invites us to rethink some theoretical issues such as what is memory and what does 'losing memory' mean and imply. Professor Lars-Christer Hydén comes from Center for Dementia Research (CEDER), Linköping University, Sweden.
