Alzheimer’s doesn’t have to be your brain’s destiny (from author of “Still Alice”)
says neuroscientist and author of “Still Alice,” Lisa Genova. In this TED talk, she shares the latest science investigating the disease — and some promising research on what each of us can do to build an Alzheimer’s-resistant brain. Watch this inspiring talk, but also see how you can protect yourself from Alzheimer too here in my other blog post.
Genova said “we can be resilient to the presence of Alzheimer’s pathology through the recruitment of yet-undamaged pathways. And we create these pathways, this cognitive reserve, by learning new things. Ideally, we want these new things to be as rich in meaning as possible, recruiting sight and sound and associations and emotion.”
