Neurofitness for the Mature Brain

It turns out that you can teach an old dog new tricks! Scientists have discovered that the brain has the ability to make new neural connections no matter our age or abilities. They’ve coined this neuroplasticity. And one of the best ways to keep our brains healthy and generating new networks is by moving our bodies and activating our senses.

In this talk, Neuromovement Educator Emily Hodos will explain some basics about the brain and neuroplasticity especially as it relates to common concerns as we age - remembering things, seeing well, hearing clearly, maintaining good balance. She will then share a series of simple movement and sensory exercises that can help us maintain or regain our sharpness and agility.
