Advance praise for
“This is the most important book you’ll read this year, about the biggest discovery in neuroscience of the last century. With meticulous research Dr. Cortright has rescued new, paradigm-shifting findings about neurogenesis from being lost in neuroscience journals and brought them to the wider public to show the astounding number of ways all of us can expand our cognitive abilities and overall brain function.”
“This is the best book to give anyone over 50! Dr. Cortright’s engaging and well researched book on how to generate new brain cells as we age offers practical information, inspiration, and hope for aging brilliantly.”
“For years, I’ve been waiting for the book that would show how the whole brain can be enhanced, not just one of its functions, not one of its certain skills, but the brain on the whole. And here it is. Written in a clear, convincing and energetic manner by seasoned researcher, clinician and life-long educator Brant Cortright, Ph.D., the groundbreaking Neurogenesis Diet and Lifestyle presents an indispensable set of scientifically grounded skills and strategies which lead to optimal brain health at any age and stage in life.
In his truly holistic, original concept of “neurohealthy life,” Prof. Cortright teaches us how different modalities of life engage the central biological mechanism of neurogenesis, which underlies subjective wellbeing. This book is the first of its kind to show the reciprocity of health between the organ inside our heads and the rest of the body and mind. As a guide to retraining, attuning, enhancing and vivifying the brain and a manifesto of holistic health, this book will be of interest not only to the general public, psychologists, psychiatrists, and neuroscientists, but to everybody interested in the practical aspects of the mind-body problem.”
