No Brain Left Behind

Looking ahead from the vantage point of my 60s, I feel like I’m staring down the Great Cognitive Unknown. My mom, Joanne Timms Soloway, and mother-in-law, Dorothy Rodwell Arvidson, spent their later years with dementia. Like everyone, I want my cognitive powers to remain viable. I want to rock my 70s, I want to be vibrant as possible in my 80s and beyond.


While I eat fairly healthily and walk every day, I’ve been feeling the need to reevaluate to make sure I’m on the right track.


I had seen Lisa Mosconi, Ph.D., INHC being interviewed on several YouTube videos and had seen Kristin Willeumier, Ph.D.’s Biohack Your Brain at Barnes and Noble. Both are brain researchers. Decision made – I would find out what they had to say.
