The Changing Mind: A Neuroscientist's Guide to Ageing Well [9780241379387]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

More of us are living into our eighties than ever before - what if the best was yet to come? The bestselling author of The Organized Mind reveals the evolving power of the human brain through the ages.

Recent studies show that our decision-making skills improve as we age, and that our happiness levels peak at age 82.

Dr Daniel Levitin draws on cutting-edge research from neuroscience and psychology to demonstrate the cognitive benefits of getting older. He challenges the beliefs that surround the ageing process, including our assumptions around memory loss and our focus on lifespan instead of 'healthspan'.

Packed with engaging interviews with individuals who have thrived far beyond the conventional age of retirement, this book offers a realistic plan full of practical, cognitive enhancing tricks for everyone to follow during each decade of their life.

The Changing Mind is a radical exploration of what we all can learn from those who age joyously.


AUTHOR: Dr. Daniel J. Levitin has a PhD in Psychology, having trained at Stanford University Medical School and the University of California, Berkeley. He is the author of the Number One bestseller This Is Your Brain on Music, published in nineteen languages, and the bestsellers The World in Six Songs and The Organized Mind. Currently he is a James McGill Professor of Psychology, Behavioral Neuroscience and Music at McGill University in Montreal, Canada.
