It’s Brain Awareness Week 2013 – a time to think about the promise of brain research and how it’s helping all of us take practical steps towards healthier brains and a healthier future.
This year’s theme of “exercise and the brain” brought me back to a time several years ago, when I was contacted by Reader’s Digest to talk about minimizing the cognitive changes associated with aging. The interview ended with an interesting question:
“Dr. Stuss, please give our readers your personal advice on the single most important thing they can and should do to maximize their brain function as they age.”
On their own, physical activity and cognitive exercise can each act to keep our bodies and our brains fit. But did you know that challenging your body and your brain together can maximize the brain health benefit?
