The Scientific American Healthy Aging Brain: The Neuroscience of Making the Most of Your Mature Mind

Judith Horstman

In her fourth book about brain science, Judith Horstman tackles the aging brain with a positive perspective—that aging is not a disease, but a reward for being lucky enough to have a long life. Her tone is optimistic and constructive, and her suggestions are based on scientific evidence. She discusses the different types and causes of mental decline in a forthright and practical manner, and reminds the reader that there are ways to combat and reverse many types of decline.
