Scientific studies about the brain are rapidly changing our understanding about how to maintain the brain’s function as we age. It’s becoming increasingly clear that just as the key to our long-term physical health lies in the daily choices we make around diet, exercise and sleep; our choices can also impact our brain’s health as we age. It’s exciting to know that some of the same actions that can keep our brain functioning as we age can also reduce the debilitating impact of Alzheimer’s. To understand the science around brain fitness, it’s helpful to use an analogy between brain cells and other cells in the body. We now know that to maintain good physical health, it’s important to exert physical effort to expand the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the muscle’s cells in our body. Healthy brain cells also need a good supply of blood, which carries essential nutrients and oxygen, to help them remain healthy and functioning. Ad...
Studies are always bringing surprises. The Buck Institute published an article titled " Paradoxical Alzheimer's Finding May Shed New Light on Memory Loss ," describing the findings of a study published in the March 7, 2008 issue of the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease. While scientists were looking at how the brain decides what to remember and what to forget - as brains must do or we wouldn't be able to focus on anything - scientists found something surprising. Young brains were even more busy with the "forgetting" process than older brains. The difference between "normal" forgetting, which is healthy and has a purpose, was in the plasticity of the brains. Young brains were more efficient in all ways, while Alzheimer's affected brains sort of get stuck in the forgetting process. To quote the article: "Young brains operate like Ferraris - shifting between forward and reverse, making and breaking memories with a facility that sur...
