5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended with Great Information!, October 7, 2013
This review is from: Boost Your Brain: The New Art and Science Behind Enhanced Brain Performance (Hardcover)
As an aging baby boomer and physician, I am naturally concerned about what seems to be the unavoidable decline in my memory and cognitive function. On a daily basis in my practice, I deal with dementia or patients' fears about developing dementia.

It would be an understatement to say that I have been surprised and excited to learn that I cannot only halt the decay in my brain function , but actually improve it. Boost Your Brain by Dr. Majid Fotuhi reviews the newest discoveries concerning neuroplasticity, the ability to grow and mold the brain for the better. He does this in very readable manner and also gives one a game plan to mold their own brain into a larger and better organ.

The initial portion of Boost Your Brain discusses basic brain anatomy by comparing the brain to a city with various neighborhoods along with streets and highways. We can either allow our city to deteriorate over time or take active steps to keep it strong and improved. Dr. Fotuhi reviews these steps and the science behind them including methods to optimize nutrition (including potential helpful supplements) and tools to reduce stress in our lives. Instructions are also given on proper exercise and memory tricks and techniques. At the end of each chapter, Dr. Fotuhi gives a game plan to incorporate these activities into our own lives.

In the next section of the book, Dr. Fotuhi discusses the problems which can exacerbate the usual shrinkage which accompanies aging including obesity, poor sleep, depression, strokes, and head trauma and what can be done to modify these pitfalls.

I enjoyed Boost Your Brain and plan to make changes in my own lifestyle to help "grow my brain". As a physician, I highly recommend this book to everyone looking to optimize their brain health.
