Our Ageing Brain
The international bestseller
We all worry occasionally that our brains -- particularly our memories -- just don't work as well as they used to. In this groundbreaking book, André Aleman shows that though the decline in our mental capacities begins earlier than we think, this is not such a bad thing. In fact, older people are more resistant to the effects of stress, cope better with their emotions and with complex situations, and are -- generally speaking -- happier than their younger counterparts.
Our Ageing Brain is a refreshing, informative, and ultimately positive book about what happens to our brains as we grow older. Drawing on the latest research, it tells you what takes place in the brain and why, how to recognise the early symptoms of Alzheimer's disease, and how to distinguish fact from fiction when it comes to ways to slow down the ageing process. It concludes with the seven most important things you can do to keep your brain healthy.
