Rewiring the aging brain

Either the video service is temporarily unavailable or the requested video could not be retrieved. We apologize for the inconvenience.

The brain is the command center of the body and it is more powerful than most people recognize.  Scientists once thought the brain loses cells as we grow older.  Now research indicates that the brain continues to produce new cells into our seventies.  It also has the ability to change shape by re-wiring itself.  As science makes remarkable progress in finding ways to prevent cognitive loss and forgetfulness, Inside E Street explores the aging brain and tells you what you can do to stay mentally sharp.
