Your Call: What does it take to have a healthy brain?

Jun 25, 2015

  

On the June 25th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with neuroscientist Wendy Suzuki about the mind-body connection.

Her new book Healthy Brain, Happy Life: A Personal Program to Activate Your Brain and Do Everything Better focuses on what it takes to make our brains work better. What does it take to sharpen our thinking and increase our memory capacity? What questions do you have about enriching your brain? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Guest:

Wendy Suzuki, professor of neural science and psychology at New York University's Center for Neural Science
