There are so many new advances in brain research! Harvard experts created this exciting online course to help you understand how the brain works and how it changes as you age.

Not too long ago, much of the medical research that was done focused on increasing our lifespan. Today, our goal isn't simply to reach our 80s or 90s, but to stay mentally sharp so we can be active and enjoy those extra years. To help you do just that, Harvard experts created this exciting online course that helps you understand how the brain works and how it changes as you age, and provides you with a practical, 6-step plan to take control of your brain health.

You'll see why scientists now know our brains don't "shrink" with age, but we actually generate hundreds of new neurons each day, through a process called neurogenesis. You'll learn how stress and lack of sleep can slow down this process, while aerobic exercise can help speed it up! You'll find out why people tend to think more slowly as they age (the myelin sheath covering nerves wears down and slows the speed of communication between neurons), but your ability to "see the big picture" improves with age.

You'll be amazed by what medical experts call neuroplasticity — your brain's miraculous ability to rewire itself and create new connections that bypass areas that may be injured or damaged by disease. Best of all, by staying mentally and physically active you can maintain, or even improve, your ability to stay mentally sharp as you age.
