Do you feel like your memory isn't as great as it used to be? Do you sometimes find yourself walking into a room and forgetting why? Do you misplace things more often than you used to? As we age, our memory naturally declines-but there are scientifically proven ways to enhance brain and memory function. This book, grounded in cutting-edge neuroscience, will help you get started.
The Neuroscience of Memory offers a seven-step memory improvement program based on the latest research. You'll find powerful tools to optimize your brain and memory function, increase neural connections, and stay mentally sharp both now and in the long run. You'll learn how to "feed your brain" with good nutrition, and how exercise can help you maintain mental acuity. And finally, you'll discover how forming new memories is a key strategy for optimizing cognitive function, and how managing stress can help you not only think better in critical moments, but also help you keep the brain cells you have.
Whether you're looking for ways to improve your memory while you are young, have noticed that your memory is declining as you age and want to improve it, or are looking for resources for dealing with Alzheimer's (either for yourself or a loved one), this book will help you hold on to those treasured memories for as long as you possibly can.
