BrainMasters, Brain Boosters, and Brain Awareness 2011


The brains behind BrainMasters have been  busy celebrating  Brain Awareness Week 2011 in conjunction with the Dana Foundation, but it’s not over yet! Tomorrow is our last event, and it’s a big one. BrainMasters will be presented with a proclamation from the Cobb County Commission Chair, Tim Lee. We are receiving this in honor of our efforts to increase the public’s awareness of the brain and brain health.  Commissioner Lee is also proclaiming March as Brain Awareness Month for all the residents of Cobb County! Our event will be held at Savannah Court Assisted Living, and is of course open to the public.  So, if you’re in the area Tuesday March 22, in the morning come on over!

We have shared fun brain facts with everyone, posted Brain Boosters-scrambled words, anagrams, puzzles, etc,  answered your questions, and lead some excellent BrainMasters classes around the Atlanta area. Hopefully, you’ve all increased your overall brain knowledge, desire to exercise your brain, and desire to build your cognitive reserve. As we all know, there is no cure for Alzheimer’s Disease, but there are many things we may do to help stave off the development of this disease. We must exercise our bodies to get our blood pumping, eat a healthy well balanced diet, maintain social interactions, and exercise our brains! Here are a few Brain Boosters to help you form some new neural/brain pathways through brain/neuro plasticity. Keep in mind, we are never too old for new learning and never too young to begin building our cognitive reserves!  Enjoy, have fun!

Unscramble these words. Here is hint. The theme for all these scrambled words is that they are all either brain diseases or disorders.
