The brain is an astonishing organ. It enables us to speak, solve problems, create new ideas, and consider abstract thoughts. Scientists have identified critical periods for brain development when we are young. A recent surprise, though, is the finding that the brain has remarkable plasticity, even in our golden years. Join us for a journey into the brain to discover how our parents and life experiences influence its growth, and how we can nurture its healthful development. Explore what is possible when we apply our boundless ingenuity to bolster ourselves, restore our reserves, and improve our future.
