I'm looking through the memoir manual, and I'm having trouble finding the appropriate command - how do I set up page numbering and having it print the chapter name (both in a header)?

Something like:

1          Foo Ducks      |      Foo Ducks          2
   I say something and    |    then it's continued

where | is the middle of the book and to the left and right are the pages. Obviously the spacing here isn't perfect, but I hope it gives the general idea. (Note: I'd like to use the default options for \documentclass{memoir}.)
