"A Neuroscientist's Prescription for Improving Your Brain's Performance." (Encore presentation.)
By Rich Fisher
Tulsa, Oklahoma – (Please note: This show originally aired last year.) Scientists have learned more --- much more --- about the human brain in the last several years than they learned over the last 200 years. What, then, can we gain from all this new knowledge regarding the brain? Enter Richard Restak, a leading neuroscientist and the bestselling author of "Mozart's Brain and the Fighter Pilot." Restak is our guest on StudioTulsa today; his new book is called "Think Smart: A Neuroscientist's Prescription for Improving Your Brain's Performance." In this fascinating yet fully accessible work, he offers many practical and even surprising tips for improving one's neurological functions, cognitive practices, and so forth. There are also plenty of great pointers on how to decrease one's chances of developing Alzheimer's in later years.
