How to Maintain a Healthy Brain Throughout Your Life

Dr James Goodwin in conversation with Matthew Stadlen

Discover how simple strategies concerning exercise, diet, social life and sleep can transform your brain health paradigm, helping to optimise brain performance and halt cognitive decline.

The brain is our most vital and complex organ. It controls and coordinates our actions, thoughts and interactions with the world around us. It is the source of personality, of our sense of self, and it shapes every aspect of our human experience.

Yet most of us know precious little about how our brains actually work, or what we can do to optimise their performance. Whilst cognitive decline is the biggest long-term health worry for many of us, practical knowledge of how to look after our brain is thin on the ground.

Combining the latest scientific research with insightful storytelling and practical advice, this talk by health scientist Dr James Goodwin will reveal everything you need to know about how your brain functions, and what you can do to keep it in peak condition.
