Who says you have to get “slow” as you get old(er)? Traditional wisdom says that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, and even our language reflects the idea that with age comes “senior moments.”

Well, not anymore!

Research is showing that these limitations can in many ways be cast aside. Age related change and cognitive challenges don’t have to be a part of life. Studies show the brain is flexible and dynamic. Yes brain cells die, but contrary to folk wisdom, parts of the brain regenerate and can take over for areas that experience trauma or dysfunction.

In other words, the brain is like a lizard who can regrow his own tail! Check it out.

Cognitive remodeling can give you the edge over brain fog. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2001/08/010820072346.htm
