Your brain remembers the first words you hear, no matter the language
Living in a bilingual country like Canada means that a lot of us know the benefits of having a second language. And, a lot of us have had the opportunity to pick up that second language when our brains were primed for learning during the first few years of life and school. A new study is showing that traces of the first language you hear as a baby remain hardwired in your brain even if you haven’t been exposed to that language for years. Read more about it here.

Driving with no driver?!
The last few years have seen driverless cars take to the roads and mind controlled prosthetics unveiled. Now, it appears that researchers in China have combined the two in a mind-controlled car that has been successfully tested. While the functionality is quite limited, could this be the first step in creating greater access for people with limited mobility? See what they’ve built here.

How binge watching affects young brains
How we watch television has changed dramatically as more and more content is delivered to our TVs, and streamed online to our computers and phones. All of this means it is much easier to watch entire television series in one sitting. The effects of binge watching combined with lack of physical activity are now being studied to see how this may affect cognitive ability. Read about it here.

Can fasting help slow cognitive decline?
Scientists have long known that dietary changes have an effect on our brains. Neuroscientists are now studying what fasting or limited caloric intake does to our brain health. They have discovered some interesting connections between restricting calories or intermittent fasting and slowing age-related chronic diseases. Find out more here.

Add some flavour to boost your brain
There are certain foods known to enhance brain health and thankfully, a new study is showing that adding flavourful herbs and spices can also help keep our brains in tip top shape. Find out which herbs you should add to your next brain friendly meal, here.

Behavioural problems and the differences in young brains
Children diagnosed with behavioural problems were once just dismissed as being different or troublesome. As our understanding of the social and developmental complexities behind these issues increase, so does our ability to effectively treat them. A recent study has mapped the specific brain areas connected to behavioural problems and gives researchers and parents greater understanding of what’s taking place in these young brains. Read about the research here.

Are you 50 plus?
Your brain is one of the most important pieces of safety equipment when you get behind the wheel of a car. As we age, our reaction times slow down and our field of vision decreases. This means our safety on the road is also reduced. By spending only 10 hours doing the engaging driving cognitive training program you can save your life and the lives of others on the road!
