All four of her Grandparents had Alzheimers, and she had the genes as well. As a child, watching them lose their minds terrified her. When her parents started becoming forgetful she set about computer mapping every neuron in her head, partially as a hail-mary backup, partially as a record for future generations. The mapping went so well  she could watch “her" mind become sentient. Finally she could talk to “herself." The biggest problem: her model, while self aware, had no memories.
