On the September 30th edition of Your Call, we’ll revisit our conversation with neuroscientist Wendy Suzuki about the mind-body connection. 

Her 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?
