A cognitively rich and physically active lifestyle can be very beneficial for brain health and cognitive performance. Underlying these effects is one of the most important properties of the brain: brain plasticity, or neuroplasticity, is the brain’s capacity to adapt based on life experiences and it’s what allows us to learn and become more skilled with practice.Brain plasticity acts at a functional level by adjusting the functional properties of existing neurons and synapses through molecular changes, and at a structural level through changes in neuronal morphology, neuronal connections, glial cells, and other dynamic adjustments in cellular structures. To learn about …

Scientists have long suspected that the relative abundance of specific nutrients affects cognitive processes and emotions. Research now confirms influences of dietary factors on brain function, synaptic plasticity, and mental function.Your brain is always “on.” It regulates your thoughts, movements, breathing and heartbeat — it works hard 24/7, even while you’re asleep. This means your brain requires a constant supply of fuel. That “fuel” comes from the foods you eat and what’s in that fuel makes all the difference. What you eat directly affects the structure and function of your brain.Your brain functions best when it’s given premium fuel. Adequate nutrition is necessary …
