An Introduction to What is Normal Brain Aging

with author Cynthia Dainsberg

What’s the key to keeping your mind sharp and your brain healthy as you grow older? Online puzzles? Nutritional supplements? Mall walking? Pickle-ball tournaments?

People forget things—a name, where they put their keys, a phone number—and yet what is dismissed as a minor inconvenience at 25 years of age can evolve into a momentary anxiety at 35, and a major source of personal worry at age 55 or 60.

The truth is, there’s no single “miracle cure” for memory problems or other brain changes that come with aging. But there is cause for optimism. Now, thanks to discoveries in neuroscience, we know that the brain can grow new cells and form new neural connections. Like our muscles and other body parts, the brain can rebuild itself through healthy lifestyle practices, repeated use and exercise.

This is great news for people who intend to live a long time. It means we can prevent memory loss by learning AND practicing mental, physical, and social strategies that promote healthy brain development.

In this informative session, Cynthia will share what she has learned about cognitive aging and share some of the positive steps that can be taken to maintain and improve cognitive health.
