Lecture no. 10 from the course: 12 Essential Scientific Concepts
Taught by Professor Indre Viskontas | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Delve deeper into the implications of neuroplasticity, and how we can harness its power to stave off the cognitive effects of aging, recover from disease, and master complex skills. The secrets lie in specific parts of the brain, like the hippocampus and specific proteins, like the brain-derived neurotrophic factor, or BDNF.
