    I love this! I always look for new things to learn, and new ways to do it. I’ve only done a lit­tle, but I’ve already learned some­thing about me. That says some­thing, but I’m not sure what.

    Glad you’re enjoy­ing the site Lin­da! Come back and vis­it again.

    inter­est­ed in help­ing my son nat­u­ral­ly after he received “uncom­mon” side effects from tak­ing rital­en. Look­ing for help and resources to keep him on track naturally

    Hel­lo Deven, you could ask your son’s spe­cial­ist to look into Cogmed Work­ing Mem­o­ry Train­ing pro­gram and check whether it may be a good fit for him. Kind regards

    Hi there! Thank you for the men­tion about my post on Med­i­cine 2.0. And thanks for these fun and very infor­ma­tive reads in you site. All the best!

    Thank you. I am an elder­ly per­son of 67. I was a very busy Engi­neee and still keep read­ing etc.One impor­tant point I learned from my first vis­it of the site is that it is your activ­i­ties that brain adopt. What I mean is if have slowed down after retire­ment, unless you prop­er­ly reju­vante your brain you keep on slow­ing down even if your phisique is sound. Thanks any way.

  7. Alvaro on September 14, 2007 at 6:28

    Thank you both.

    AKN: yes, our activ­i­ties influ­ence our brains. So you are right to say that there is much we can do. You are more than welcome

    I still don’t know what I’ll be when I grow up though I’ll be 82 in Oct. Is there an intro­duc­to­ry test to dis­cov­er and describe one’s men­tal con­di­tion, pos­si­bly to dis­cov­er weak­ness­es and strengths as a way to choose the best exer­cis­es and activities?

    Great to find a site that thinks like I do! I am 51 and know that exer­cise defin­te­ly increas­es your brain pow­er. I try to teach women that on my site. Exer­cise is a great stress reliev­er. To often we get stressed and then get de-pressed. Women and depres­sion are at an all time high and we need to pass on the word(s) that will help stop the killer, stress!

  10. Alvaro on October 18, 2007 at 6:38

    Edgar: :-)

    Very good ques­tion. We are work­ing with sev­er­al groups to be able to iden­ti­fy a good assess­ment you can use. Noth­ing exists today with the qual­i­ty we would like, but see it as a pri­or­i­ty. Please sub­scribe to our newslet­ter to be informed of developments.

    Cindy: yes, both stress man­age­ment and exer­cise are crit­i­cal for our health and qual­i­ty of life. Now, let’s remem­ber that exer­cise is both phys­i­cal and mental!

    I’m a geom­e­try teacher look­ing for ways to engage my stu­dents and get them inter­est­ed in the lessons.
