Why cannot you keep in mind the place you set your keys? Or the name of the motion picture you observed final week? someone older than 40 is aware that forgetfulness might be unnerving, problematic, and infrequently terrifying. With compassion and humor, acclaimed journalist Cathryn Jakobson Ramin explores the criteria that make certain how good or poorly one's mind will age. She takes readers alongside on her vigorous journey—consulting with specialists within the fields of sleep, tension, demanding mind harm, hormones, genetics, and dementia, in addition to experts in foodstuff, cognitive psychology, and the burgeoning box of drug-based cognitive enhancement. alongside the best way, she turns up clean medical findings, explores the darkish areas of the human mind, and hears the intimate confessions of high-functioning midlife adults who—like such a lot of of us—are eager to comprehend precisely what is going on upstairs.
