Sharp Brains: Brain Fitness and Cognitive Health News

Neuroplasticity, Brain Fitness and Cognitive Health News


Upcoming Talk & Book Signing in Washington, DC

On Tues­day, Feb­ru­ary 7, at 7 p.m., Cleve­land Park Library in Wash­ing­ton, DC will host Alvaro Fer­nan­dez as he dis­cuss­es  The Sharp­Brains Guide to Brain Fit­ness: 18 Inter­views with Sci­en­tists, Prac­ti­cal Advice, and Prod­uct Reviews to Keep Your Brain Sharp (book also avail­able via DC library sys­tem).

The book expands on the con­cept of neu­ro­plas­tic­i­ty that recent works such as the New York Times best­seller, The Brain that Changes Itself, and the PBS Brain Fit­ness Pro­gram have intro­duced to the world. Neu­ro­plas­tic­i­ty, or the the brain’s capac­i­ty to change itself based upon expe­ri­ence, means that one’s brain is flex­i­ble enough to evolve as we age and that we can exer­cise our brains to enhance atten­tion, boost mem­o­ry, aug­ment plan­ning skills and man­age anger and destruc­tive emo­tions. Recent brain research proves that at any age, what we do in our lives influ­ences how our brains and our men­tal abil­i­ties evolve. We are nev­er too old to learn; we do not need to accept decline as inevitable.

The Sharp­Brains Guide to Brain Fit­ness has been named a Best Book by AARP. Copies will be avail­able for sign­ing after the pro­gram. More details at Cleve­land Park Library web­site (talk is open to the pub­lic).

If you can’t attend, you can watch a sim­i­lar talk on brain fit­ness Alvaro gave at New York Pub­lic Library (opens YouTube video).
