Keeping Your Brain Healthy and Smart

According to retired psychologist, Patsi Krakoff, Psy.D., who writes a blog for “Keeping Your Brain Healthy”, states that “In the past decade, researchers have found definitive evidence that the brain continues to generate new brain cells throughout life.  Studies indicate that challenging environments, which include a number of components, such as pumped-up learning opportunities, social interactions and physical activities, are key to boosting the growth of new brain cells.  What does this mean for humans?  We can keep our brain healthy by entering into new situations, new games, and new social group activities.  And if we keep learning new things, and engage in physical activity, we can continue growing new brain cells.”
