With the tremendous expected increase in the number of older Americans, Healthy Brain Aging is a growing area of interest. Research is increasingly focused on identifying means to sustain lifelong cognitive abilities.

The protein BDNF builds synapses in the human brain, nurturing brain cells and fighting off dementia. While there is no artificial way of boosting it, social and cognitive activity can. But when we move more, something extra-special happens to the brain and BDNF levels. Watch this eye-opening, enlightening lecture by Dr. Carl Cotman, UCI’s top professor in this field of research.

Recent studies have revealed new understanding of age-related brain changes, as well as lifestyle factors related to sleep, exercise, and nutrition that may delay or prevent these changes. Join us to hear leading experts shed light on the mysteries of the aging brain and the latest research findings toward ensuring healthy brain aging.
