Every now and then, I read Dr. Merzenich’s quote and reflect on invaluable change that it brought to my life. Doing physical exercises and Tai-Chi for years, I couldn’t imagine having a brain span that would fall short of my life span; and Dr. Merzenich is right; we do have a proven solution now and it’s a matter of using it or ignoring it.
“We have worked hard in our labs and done our share to help people understand their brain and show them how to prevent unnecessary brain aging or fix it before it’s late; beyond this point it’s their responsibility to take it, or drop it!”
I have been working tirelessly over the past several years to raise awareness about brain plasticity and fitness so I’m always deeply appreciative of any help from you, even if you simply passing on Dr. Merzenich’s powerful message.

Managing your menopausal brain
Kind regards,Frieda Fanni
DynamicBrain Inc. is the Canadian partner of Posit Science Corporation providing brain fitness program BrainHQ in English and French.
If going through menopause wasn’t already challenging enough, scientists have now confirmed that “brain fog” is real and not something you’re imagining. While the changes in hormone levels can affect memory it can also, generally, be managed without hormone therapy. Regular physical exercise and training with BrainHQ
has been shown to improve memory, thinking and the focus that gets muted during menopause. Learn more here
A pacemaker for your neurons
Nobody is comfortable with the idea of having medical devices controlling their bodies. We’ve seen pacemakers have revolutionized heart therapies, and improved in design to be less intrusive. The same is now beginning to occur with nanomeshes to help treat the neurons of patients with Parkinson’s disease. Having a treatment that mirrors how our neurons mesh within our brain, and can be injected with a needle vastly improves upon current highly invasive treatments.

The connection between thirst and sleep
Do you get yourself a glass of water as part of your bedtime routine? Scientists have found a connection between our biological clock and thirst in the hours leading up to sleep. They believe this helps prevent dehydration throughout the night. If we could somehow stimulate the area of the brain responsible for this process, we could discover a cure for jet lag and shift work. Find out more here
