Sudoku will not save you. Join neuroscientist Daniel Levitin to discover proven and effective ways to keep your brain fit and healthy into old age.
We are encouraged to think of old age as synonymous with a decline in our skills. Yet recent studies show that our decision making improves as we age, and that our happiness levels peak in our eighties. What really happens to our brains as we get older?
In this livestream, In Conversation event, neuroscientist, psychologist and internationally bestselling author Daniel Levitin will invite us to dramatically shift our understanding of aging, demonstrating its many cognitive benefits.
– The link between social isolation and the brain’s development
– The impact of remote working on mental health and ageing
– What ageing does to the immune system
– The advantages of old age during a crisis
– tips on how to age well, including why it’s important not to see yourself as old and why you should spend time with those younger than yourself
– Why everyone thinks memory fail as you age – and why everyone is wrong
– Why Sudoku will not save you and the most effective ways to keep your brain fit
– Why you shouldn’t retire but if you have to, how you should continue to pursue meaningful work always
Drawing on cutting-edge research to offer realistic guidelines and practical cognition-enhancing tricks for everyone to follow during every decade of their life, Daniel will show us what we all can learn from those who age joyously.
