In the pursuit of optimal brain health and cognitive function throughout life, cognitive neuroscientist Dr. Sandi Chapman dispels the notion that cognitive decline is inevitable with age. Dr. Chapman advocates for proactive brain training, emphasizing that just as muscles need exercise, the brain requires continual stimulation for optimal development, and recommends everyday exercises and habitual practices to promote brain health and wellbeing.Dr. Chapman highlights the dynamic nature of the brain, refuting the misconception that the brain becomes stagnant after a person's 20s and encouraging individuals of all ages to engage in brain training exercises, emphasizing the importance of approaching brain health with a preventative mindset and asserting that it is never too early or too late to prioritize cognitive fitness.
