Explore Neuroplasticity, The Untapped Power To Improve Our Lives As We Age

Advertisement

Today’s 50-year-old will likely live into their mid-80s, and if they do, there’s a more than even probability that their brain will decline in function before they die. Aging brains have increased difficulty remembering, paying close attention, responding rapidly, and performing complex tasks. Coordination and movement and many other cognitive functions that once came easily begin to slip away.

These symptoms of fundamental physical changes are more than just mere lapses in memory. But there’s hope. Groundbreaking scientific research into neuroplasticity is revealing how to combat this dire prognosis.

“The Brain Revolution” explores the foundational principles of neuroplasticity — how the brain can change throughout one’s lifespan — to show viewers how to take control of their lives as they age. With this information, anyone can use the most powerful part of their body to improve their lives.

Hosted by Ashleigh Banfield, “The Brain Revolution,” from the producers of “The Brain Fitness Program” and “Brain Secrets” provides the most comprehensive and easy-to-follow plan for maximizing and protecting the brain for a lifetime.
