Only recently has it been discovered that the brain produces new brain cells throughout our entire lives, a process called neurogenesis. The rate at which we form new brain cells has a profound influence upon every aspect of our life. When the rate of neurogenesis is low, we see cognitive deficits and memory problems, anxiety and stress, depression, and lowered immunity. Life is difficult.
With high rates of neurogenesis we see the opposite: enhanced cognitive abilities, rapid learning, emotional resilience, protection from anxiety, stress and depression, heightened immunity and robust health. We flourish. Life is wonderful.
Recent discoveries in the emerging field of neurogenesis reveal the secrets to radically improve your brain's health. Today's special guest, Brant Cortright, Ph.D. has written the first book to bring together research to show how, The Neurogenesis Diet and Lifestyle: Upgrade Your Brain, Upgrade Your Life. His book presents the latest discoveries in the science of Neurogenesis, exercises to build a better brain, and a variety of dietary/supplement recommendations.
Brant Cortright, Ph. D. is a highly respected clinical psychologist and Professor of Psychology at California Institute of Integral Studies. His consulting practice specialized in cutting-edge brain health and neuroscience-informed depth therapy.
