Researcher Robert S. Wilson, Ph.D., of Rush University Medical Center in Chicago reports that…clues from neuro-imaging studies suggest the activities that make a difference in brain-boosting are the ones practiced regularly and intensively and…that the beefed-up brain regions give you “a little more mileage out of what you have.” Neurology, online version, September 2010

How To Outsmart Alzheimer’s, Wall Street Journal, March 2010, Dr. Kenneth Kosik, co-director of the Neuroscience Research Institute at the University of California, Santa Barbara recommends “that individuals start efforts to prevent disease in their 50s.”

A Cognitive Training Program based on Principles of Brain Plasticity: Results From Improvement In Memory With Plasticity-Based Adaptive Cognitive Training (IMPACT) , Journal of American Geriatric Society, April 2009, reported “improved generalized measures of memory and attention.”
