Summary Loss of memory and acuity is not a natural part of aging. As the celebrated neurologist David Perlmutter shows, it is easy to regain and maintain clarity. Most people can see the signs in their lives-they canʼt remember where they put their keys; they forget who it is theyʼre calling, mid-dial; shopping lists are the only things to indicate why theyʼve entered a store. But these are not normal signs of aging. They are the symptoms of a distressed brain, one on its way to more serious conditions that can leave individuals unable to care for themselves later in life. In the Better Brain Book, Dr. Perlmutter provides all the tools readers need for rejuvenating the mind, whether they have become forgetful and less able to focus at work or are trying to help a loved one who has suffered a serious illness.
