Neuroscience has shown that our brains are plastic – constantly seeking new challenges and new stimuli and adapting to our environment, daily activities and habits. We are what we practice, and our daily choices can be driving our plasticity in a positive or a negative direction — making our later years rich and enjoyable or predictable and limited. Emotional and physical well-being rely on keeping ourselves sharp, engaged and on the ball — concepts entertainingly explored in "Brain Fitness Peak Performance," hosted by Peter Coyote.
