Description
For many years, scientists thought that the human brain simply decayed over time and its dying cells led to memory slips, fuzzy logic, and depression. But as Pulitzer Prize–winning science writer Barbara Strauch explains here, the latest findings indicate the middle-aged brain is more flexible and capable than previously thought. In fact, new research suggests that the brain reorganizes, improves in important functions, and even helps us adopt a more optimistic outlook in middle age. We recognize patterns faster, make better judgments, and find unique solutions to problems. Part scientific survey, part how-to guide, her book is a fascinating glimpse at our surprisingly talented middle-aged minds.
