Brain health is something that should be on all of our minds. After all, our brains help us maintain our health, navigate through life, and ultimately enjoy our lives. How can we preserve our brain function? Although significant strides have been made in this direction, most people have not thought about how to sustain their cognitive functions—their ability to understand, remember, judge, and use language. While there are no silver bullets, in this talk, we will discuss various strategies that may help build our cognitive reserves so we can live long, fulfilling lives.
