Keep Your Brain Alive
by Dr. Lawrence Katz and Manning Rubin
Keep Your Brain Alive draws upon cutting-edge neurological research: 83 neurobic exercises brings help to everyone whose memory is starting to slip. Devised by Dr. Lawrence Katz, a professor of neurobiology at Duke University Medical Center, and Manning Rubin, author of 60 Ways to Relieve Stress in 60 Seconds, this book offers a regimen of mental cross-training that can be done anywhere, by anyone, at any time of day.
The premise is simple: When you exercise the brain, you release natural growth factors called neurotrophins, which in turn enhance the brain's level of fitness. And nothing so easily stimulates the brain as breaking routines and using the five senses in new and unexpected ways.
