AARP recently released a list of Top 5 Best Books for Brain Fit­ness [2]. SharpBrains.com is hon­ored to have pub­lished one of those Top 5 books and to present this Live Q&A Series where over a hun­dred par­tic­i­pants asked ques­tions to authors of those best books. Par­tic­i­pants sub­mit­ted writ­ten ques­tions, mod­er­a­tors selected the most impor­tant and rel­e­vant ques­tions, and book authors wrote their answers for every­one to read. Below you can access the Full Tran­scripts of those engag­ing conversations.

Descrip­tion: Aging baby boomers are becom­ing acutely aware of their own mem­ory lapses. Is each case incip­i­ent Alzheimer’s or just a benign “senior moment”? …In The Mem­ory Bible, neu­ro­sci­en­tist Small has com­piled an amus­ing and infor­ma­tive array of self-tests, puz­zles, quizzes, and other tech­niques to enhance mem­ory per­for­mance. He also draws upon cur­rent sci­en­tific advance­ments in mem­ory and rec­om­mends brain-saving lifestyle changes.  [4]Learn More and Order Book Here [5].

Descrip­tion: The Sharp­Brains Guide to Brain Fit­ness is an invalu­able resource to nav­i­gate grow­ing brain research and iden­tify the lifestyle fac­tors and prod­ucts that con­tribute to brain fit­ness. By gath­er­ing eigh­teen of the top sci­en­tists and offer­ing insight and detailed descrip­tions of over twenty prod­ucts, this text is an essen­tial guide to the field of neu­ro­plas­tic­ity and cog­ni­tive health. While most of us have heard the phrase “use it or lose it,” very few under­stand what “it” means, or how to prop­erly “use it” in order to main­tain brain func­tion and fit­ness. The Sharp­Brains Guide to Brain Fit­ness is designed to fill this gap.  [8]Learn More and Order Book Here [9].
