Never before has science, medicine, and technology intersected in this same way – and with such important information for your quality of life. Learn what the latest medical and scientific evidence is telling us about how to best protect your brain to live better, longer. You will hear the research-based evidence about the effect that lifestyle has on your ability to live well into your eighties and beyond, with health, vibrancy, and cognitive sharpness.
The last decade of new technology has created a gap between young digital natives – born into the technology – and older digital immigrants – who come to it as adults. This new milestone in brain evolution has changed both the wiring of our brain and our behavior, and requires us to update the functioning of our brains, if we want to perform at our highest potential throughout our life time.
