Brain Health Across the Lifespan

The human brain is the single greatest miracle ever designed. Weighing but 3 pounds, composed of 60% fat and demanding 25% of the blood from each heartbeat, the brain serves as the origin of our very identity. Neuroscience has enabled a new understanding of the brain including neural plasticity. This talk will provide the fascinating story of the human brain to include brain-behavior relations. We now have the ability to shape our brains regardless of age and to build “brain resilience” capable of delaying onset of clinical symptoms related to disease. Dr. Nussbaum will teach his Brain Health Lifestyle® as an important approach to building brain health. The presentation will also provide insights to possible conditions of the brain in late-life such as Alzheimer’s dementia and related disorders. The talk is designed to be informative, personal, and fun.
