Research now shows that some memory loss attributed to aging can be slowed, or even prevented. Growing older does not necessarily mean growing forgetful or having to be affected by 'senior moments.' There is now evidence that mental stimulation can improve your mental wellbeing. Whether using "brain games" or other logistical exercises, you can now help your brain be stronger and healthier. Lark McCarthy is joined in our studios to discuss the present state of brain research by doctors Majid Fotuhi and Sandra Chapman, both leading experts in neuroscience. Also on our show, Lark is put to the test by Dr. Henry Mahncke, when she is challenged to play a variety of online brain games. Segment 3: Healthy Resolutions.
