Synopsis: "Reassuring...upbeat...grounded in facts and studies." -- "Publishers Weekly" (starred review)
Filled with specific advice and simple exercises, this groundbreaking guide from acclaimed neurologist Dr. Richard M. Restak draws on the latest scientific research to help maintain--and increase--brain power at any age. Contrary to common belief, the human brain does not necessarily deteriorate with age, but can work just as well, if not better than a young one. The key, says Dr. Restak, is keeping the brain active. His 30 practical suggestions offer a new and positive approach to mental fitness, by helping us to: * Improve memory
* Reawaken intellectual curiosity
* Understand the role of genetics and diet in staying mentally fit
* Shatter the myths about Alzheimer's, strokes, insomnia, and depression
* Explore the pros and cons of various drug treatments
* Learn the ten secrets of successful aging
* Maintain a stimulating social network
* Expand the connections between neurons
* Keep the brain operating at peak level

From Library Journal: Restak, neurologist and author of numerous popular books on the human brain (including the companion volume to the PBS series The Brain), considers here the effects of aging on the human brain and suggests ways to maintain peak mental performance. Stressing that brain functioning is the most predictive feature of longevity, Restak describes both the cellular mechanisms responsible for aging and the cognitive processes of the mature brain?some of which, he notes, actually improve with age. He discusses the role of neurotransmitters and briefly describes drugs that may compensate for changes that occur in these chemicals over time. Throughout, the author carefully distinguishes normal, age-associated memory loss from symptoms characterizing a diseased brain. Restak summarizes the wisdom of nine mentally agile seniors and offers 30 practical suggestions (covering nutrition, exercise, and social and mental activities) to maximize mental performance. A useful and popular acquisition for any public library.?Laurie Bartolini, Legislative Research, Springfield, Ill.
