Our brains don’t have to decline with age!

The human brain can adapt and change with astonishing power, even into old age. With the right nutrition and exercise, the brain can form new neural pathways, change existing connections and adapt to new situations. You can maintain the size and function of your brain, improving how well you process and remember information, solve problems and think creatively.

“Healthy Habits for the Brain” will be the last topic discussed in the free series, “Aging Well, Staying Vital,” from 9:15 to 10:45 a.m. Wednesday, May 27, at Peace Lutheran Church in Grass Valley.
