Do you worry about memory loss, or not being able to 'keep up' with the younger generation? Changes in our thinking skills are thought of as a natural part of aging, however, current research is demonstrating that many of our daily habits have an influence on our brain's health.

Dr. Larissa Mead-Wescott describes our current understanding of factors that may reduce the likelihood of cognitive decline, and specific changes you can make to keep yourself sharper, longer.
