Emotions Linger After Forgotten Events In Alzheimer’s Patients
National Public Radio

A new study suggests people with Alzheimer’s may keep feeling happy or sad even after they’ve forgotten why they feel that way. Researchers played movies for patients, like “When Harry Met Sally” or “Sophie’s Choice.” Five minutes later, many people forgot that they had seen the movie, but their feelings remained.

Edmarie Guzman-Velez is one of the study’s authors. She’s at the University of Iowa and joins us from Iowa Public Radio.
