Memory is important in our lives. It is our brain's filing system. Without memory we are unable to remember our past experiences and our loved ones, yet be able to think about the future. Without memory we cannot learn anything. Loss of ability to remember is one of the most dreaded afflictions of the human condition and presents considerable and rising social and economic costs on the world's health and social care systems in the context of the increasing aging of the world's population. Brain disorders such as Alzheimer's disease (AD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) lead to profound memory deficits and are recognized as major challenges and one of the most important causes of disability in the elderly.
