We do not think about the memory phenomenon before the memory will remind us of itself with some similar enigma. And then we will call this sclerosis, or will use some other stylish word. Scientists, however, are professionally interested in the memory problems. This extremely interesting subject is discussed in our interview with the Honored Scientist of RF, Doctor Sc. (Medicine), Professor Rostislav Yul’yanovich Il’yuchenko whose lab in the Institute of Physiology of SB RAMS is exploring the mechanisms of the memory regulation.
