Here's an article about researchers who are trying to develop drugs to deal
with memory loss:


"One such company is Memory Pharmaceuticals... They have used analysis of
cell cultures, slices of brain and animal models to establish an
understanding of human memory.
'We are searching the molecular pathways of memory for single proteins that
can be used pharmacologically to repair impairments at the level of the
synapse,' the company's president, Axel Unterbeck, says.
The approach seems to have succeeded. Unterbeck recently announced that he
expects Memory Pharmaceuticals to launch trials of a pill to enhance the
memory within the next year."
