I'll tell the diverse, irresistible stories of a civil servant, laid off in his 50s, who earned a Ph. D. in psychology a 60 and became a specialist in the treatment of substance abuse in his 70s; a Jewish grandmother who opened an erotic art museum in South Beach Florida and was, in her 709s, recently awarded a Ph. D. in sexology; a former intelligence officer who became a featured modern dancer; a farmer's widow who opened a successful diner in response to 9/11; a woman who flew to Africa and founded a model microfinance program, among others.I focus on advances in neuroscience about our possibilities in aging, how learning and physical activity prevent or slow the decline of brain function as we age, and the near future of slowing and reversing aging of the brain. www.brucefrankel.net
