There is little that can be done to avoid the decline in senses that accompanies age, but memory is a tool that can help deal with. When an individual feels departed from their surroundings because they cannot hear or see comprehensively, they can tap into their memory of the sensations they felt in the past and relive those special moments. Elderly people can feel disconnected from their surroundings because they cannot hear sounds from objects or other people.

Gray matter in the brain is what controls much of the human body’s mental cognition. Skloot’s effects are very similar to those of a patient who suffers from Alzheimer’s or dementia.
