I would like to share with you a few short lines from our Dr. Merzenich. It seems a short quotation but the implications can be big if you follow it by making small changes to your regular routines be it taking a different route when driving to a friend’s house or actively paying attention to your body movements during your daily walk, run or bike ride.
"You would never exercise your brain by solving the same problem a million times using exactly the same approach to come up with exactly the same answer…"
Our free BrainHQ Daily Spark exercises can be helpful too. Give it a try and let us know if we can help any further.

Dementia trigger found in the brain’s immune system
Researchers and doctors are constantly on the search for a better understanding on the causes of dementia as they develop more effective treatments. A recent study has identified a malfunction in the brain’s immune system of patients as a potential trigger for neurodegenerative disease. Could early detection of a defect in the immune cells of the brain be the key that unlocks an eventual cure? Find out more about this study and the implications on dementia patients here
