If you have any interest in the brain and the studies that are going on, this is a great book for the layman. SUPER BRAIN, by Deepak Chopra and Rudolph E. Tanzi is an easy read and full of positive advice for any facing problems with this part of the body. So many things I had learned before have been proven wrong and for me this is like a light in the dark. Hubby has been having short term memory problems and mine is not much better, but not far into this book I find that this is not necessarily the end of the road for us. So many of our people are aging that money is finding it's way into studies which hold hope for our life quality.

I am still young so I don't tend to have a lot of problems with my short term memory. However, with that said, I have to say that one of the things that I do on a regular basis in order to keep my brain strong is that I will do different kinds of puzzles. Oh yeah, I do also have to say that another thing that I do that keeps me sharp is I help my children with their homework. Maybe you should see if you can find a child that you would be able to help do their homework.

Hi savypat, I agree, there are new ideas and treatments coming out all the time. We are an aging population and that may well be the reason. I have books that I haven't even started to read yet but this is certainly one that I should add to my list. I'm just starting to recover from a bad bout of the flu but I'm hoping to be around for a long time yet. Quality of life however, is what matters most to me. Blessings.

I know that we only use a very small part of our brain, it's being able to tap into the parts that lay dormant, maybe we haven't fully developed as humans to be able to put the whole brain into use. Or maybe some people do, take Stephen Hawkin for example, super intelligent, he has obviously tapped further into his brain.
