About Us

What is The Memory Clinic?

Affiliations & Research Opportunities

The Memory Clinic has been involved in the research of medications to help treat Alzheimer’s disease since 1990 and our efforts, together with the efforts of other clinics worldwide, have led to the approval of the five medications used widely today. We continue to participate in clinical research that is on the forefront of the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Due to our involvement in clinical trials, we are able to offer our patients access to the latest advances in medical science.

About Our Logo – Why A Seahorse?

Many people ask us why we selected a seahorse for the logo of The Memory Clinic. The Latin word for seahorse is hippocampus, which is a part of the brain that is very important in memory. The term hippocampus was originally coined in 1587 by Julius Cesear Arantius because he thought that the anatomical structure of the hippocampus resembled a seahorse especially the curled structure of the tail!
