Your Brain’s Fitness and Empowered Aging
You may well have some understanding that the health of your brain is intimately linked with how well or not well you age. However, getting to the specifics of the matter is puzzling even to neuroscientists. In 2014, a group of scientists gathered at the Stanford Center of Longevity concluded that brain training does not work (Allaire at al., 2014). Two months later, a larger group of scientists worldwide decided they were wrong and stated there was indeed value to brain training (Alescio-Lautier at al., 2014).
People want to know what is the thing they can do, whether it is taking designer brain pills, doing crossword puzzles or eating well, to ensure they have the greatest chances of aging healthfully in body and brain.
The most widely supported answer to that question is that, yes, there is “a thing that is best to do”. However, the problem is that this “thing” differs from person to person. There are multiple evidence-based ways to promote and protect various brain functions. These include physical exercise, meditation, varying through various complex tasks, eating well, learning a new language, brain training,
biofeedback, engaging in positive, challenging activities and so on.
