Oct 31, 2012 Comments Off on Update: New brain science leads to new tools and to new thinking
We often view memory, thinking, emotions, as completely separate entities, but they truly are part of the same process. So, if we want to improve brain health, we need to pay attention to the “weak link” in that process. In today’s society, managing stress and negative emotions is often that weak link, as we discuss during October Q&A session with participants in SharpBrains’ new e-course.
