The Pillars of Brain Health: Neuroplasticity
When we challenge the brain to master a novel concept or skill, it creates new synaptic connections, resulting in a stronger, more resilient brain. (As neurobiologists like to say, “Neurons that fire together, wire together.”)
The Pillars of Brain Health: Nutrition
Perhaps nothing sets humans apart more from other species than our brains. Comparatively large and wonderfully complex, they’re what allow us to communicate across mediums – from the written and spoken word to expressive arts like dance and sculpture – and to ponder our own existence.
The Pillars of Brain Health: Exercise
The brain loves when we break a sweat. The clear-headed euphoria that can accompany the end of a good workout is not a fluke: Research shows that exercise can improve cognitive function, mood, and even change our brain structure.
