“4 Essential (and Overlooked) Facts About Your Brain and Your Mind”

I just read another brain-focused Alvaro Fernandez (Sharp­Brains’ co-founder and Chief Executive Officer) article posted on The Creativity Post that I wanted to share with everybody. You can find it here:

The four “essential (and overlooked) facts” he writes about are:

  1. “Smart pills” simply don’t exist (drat)
  2. Aging can bring (cognitive)decline...
  3. … and also improve­ment.
  4. “Cells that fire together wire together.”

Here’s the summary that I like: “our brains and minds are far from set in stone due to genet­ics or age. Grow­ing evi­dence sug­gests beyond a rea­son­able doubt that what we do at every sin­gle day has an impact on brain fit­ness that very same day and also later in life.”
