1) FEATURE-Brain fitness seen as hot industry of the future (Reuters)

Note: Probably the most comprehensive article I have seen so far covering this emerging field, based on our market report and with original reporting. Highly recommended read.

 2) Learning & the Brain Conference for Educators and Clinicians

– April 26-29, 2008. Cambridge, MA

Description: “Cognitive neuroscience has discovered that the brain is not ‘hardwired’ from birth, but holds a remarkable lifelong power to change—a phenomenon called ‘plasticity.’ Positive or negative environments, exercise, nurturance, learning, and other experiences continue to change the brain throughout life. These revolutionary findings point to new possibilities for ‘rewiring’ the brain to help overcome learning disorders and to enhance memory, learning, IQ and achievement in all learners.”

3) Brain Health Across the Lifespan Seminar for Health & Aging Professionals

– May 15th, 2008. San Francisco, CA

Description: “Research indicates the human brain generates new brain cells and that environmental input such as aerobic exercise changes the structure and function of the brain. These findings and the work of others have unleashed a cultural shift in America that underscores the importance of brain health. This program will teach the basics of your brain and propose a brain health lifestyle. A proactive and lifelong lifestyle for brain health relates to development of brain reserves that may delay the onset of neurodegenerative disease. Leading scientists will share their findings in layman’s terms. Come and join the revolution in brain health!”
