Mental Stimulation Can Help Treat Memory Loss

Brain games and techniques to guard against 'senior moments'

Research now shows that some memory loss attributed to aging can be slowed or even prevented. Growing older does not necessarily mean you'll become forgetful or be affected by "senior moments."

There is now evidence that mental stimulation can improve your mental well-being. Whether using "brain games" or other logistical exercises, you can help your brain get stronger and healthier.

Drs. Majid Fotuhi and Sandra Chapman, both leading experts in neuroscience, join Lark McCarthy, Inside E Street host and Emmy Award-winning journalist, to discuss the present state of brain research.

Also on the show, guest Dr. Henry Mahncke puts Lark to the test, challenging her to play a variety of online brain games.

Guests:

  • Dr. Majid Fotuhi, medical director of the Neurology Institute for Brain Health and Fitness
  • Dr. Sandra Chapman, chief director of the Center for BrainHealth at University of Texas
  • Dr. Henry Mahncke, CEO of Posit Science
