“This is the best book to give anyone over 50! Dr. Cortright’s engaging and well researched book on how to generate new brain cells as we age offers practical information, inspiration, and hope for aging brilliantly.” -- Cathy Coleman, Ph.D., Conscious Aging Trainer, Institute of Noetic Sciences
“For years, I’ve been waiting for the book that would show how the whole brain can be enhanced, not just one of its functions, not one of its certain skills, but the brain on the whole. And here it is. Written in a clear, convincing and energetic manner by seasoned researcher, clinician and life-long educator Brant Cortright, Ph.D., the groundbreaking Neurogenesis Diet and Lifestyle presents an indispensable set of scientifically grounded skills and strategies which lead to optimal brain health at any age and stage in life.
In his truly holistic, original concept of “neurohealthy life”, Prof. Cortright teaches us how different modalities of life engage the central biological mechanism of neurogenesis, which underlies subjective well-being. This book is the first of its kind to show the reciprocity of health between the organ inside our heads and the rest of the body and mind. As a guide to retraining, attuning, enhancing and vivifying the brain and a manifesto of holistic health, this book will be of interest not only to the general public, psychologists, psychiatrists, and neuroscientists, but to everybody interested in the practical aspects of the mind-body problem.” -- Olga Louchakova-Schwartz, M.D., Ph.D., Neuroscientist, Professor and Director of Research, Sofia University

It has a good summary of healthy foods, but fails to connect the dots regarding lifestyle and how to integrate diet into a more comprehensive picture for maximal neurogenesis. The pieces are there, like a jigsaw puzzle, but you'll have to put them together to reinvent your lifestyle for yourself.
Just one item. The Finnish study on neurogenesis that showed cardio raised neurogenesis by up to 500% and resistance exercise made no difference is wonderful and yet fatally flawed. The study itself is very helpful in pointing the way towards further research. I contacted the authors and never heard back, so it looks like I'll have to design further experiments myself. Hint: these results are likely to be the result of fat-burning (or being in ketosis).
In the following chapters will guide you in an appropiate aproach to stressful situations and a diet that will help you to improve your neurogenesis and your health. Also, the effects of a healthy mind in your body.
This book is a very complete guide of Neurogenesis and I recommended it!
Disappointment is a word here that is expressed with much respect ; although it is less than deserving of such generosity.
