Update: Got Brain? Investing in Our Most Precious Asset in 2013

Time for Sharp­Brains’ December 2012 eNewslet­ter, fea­tur­ing the forward-looking article Got Brain? Investing in Our Most Precious Asset in 2013: “Open a week­end New York Times or Wall Street Jour­nal and you’ll find a whole sec­tion with detailed infor­ma­tion and advice for indi­vid­u­als look­ing to invest wisely. What you will not find, how­ever, is com­pa­ra­ble infor­ma­tion and advice for invest­ing in your most impor­tant asset of all: your brain. Pre­cisely because it (usu­ally) does its job so smoothly and effec­tively, it’s all too easy to for­get that your brain is there and that it needs to be invested in just as with any­thing else we value and want to con­tinue reap­ing ben­e­fits from. And with more than 2 bil­lion peo­ple world­wide cur­rently suf­fer­ing from brain-based health and pro­duc­tiv­ity chal­lenges with a result­ing global eco­nomic bur­den of more than $2 tril­lion, it’s also an issue of some importance.” Click to keep reading.

Maximizing brain fitness and mental well-being improves both public health and individual quality of life: We’re hav­ing a good con­ver­sa­tion among Sharp­Brains Sum­mit par­tic­i­pants, prompted by the blog post Life­long brain well­ness and performance–not med­ical disease–drives grow­ing demand for dig­i­tal brain health solu­tions.
