Chapter 4 Training the Aging Brain Is Cognitive Decline Inevitable? About every three seconds, the world inherits a new case of dementia. Many people wonder whether cognitive decline necessarily occurs as we grow older. The answer to this question depends, at least to some extent, on perspective. Recently we ran into an expert on Alzheimer’s disease at a social function. When the topic of conversation turned to his opinion on age-related dementia, he recommended drinking coffee, eating chocolate, and speaking multiple languages. On a different occasion, another expert recommended sleeping and eating well, being physically active, reducing anxiety, socializing,

Chapter 2 Should We Brain-Train in School? Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn. benjamin franklin The brain changes constantly. The dynamics of human development, everyday learning, and education all shape this flux. But can we propel this process beyond common experience? Can we harness the potential of brain training to reform the ways we learn, think, and behave? This chapter highlights current efforts to disseminate training programs and examines whether we should incorporate them into educational curricula. The power of mental exercise to improve daily life remains controversial. On the

Whether to restore mental capacity, combat the effects of aging, manage deviant behavior, or simply increase productivity, we have armed ourselves with a treasury of neural enhancement products in the form of supposed IQ-increasing puzzles, mentally challenging games, and age-defying nutrients. Our deference for healthy living has transformed a scientific niche into a booming empire that appeals

Chapter 5 Rehabilitating and (Re-)Training the Injured Brain Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in getting up every time we fall. confucius Sometimes, the brain could use a bit of help. This chapter features approaches to brain training that aim to rehabilitate or remediate cognitive functions in acquired brain injury. From head trauma to stroke, the causes of brain injury vastly differ. In addition to improving behavior, brain training can aid in the characterization and diagnosis of brain injury symptoms. Here we sketch out methods to restore typical function by activating or stimulating relevant neural networks.

Chapter 1 Introduction There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that’s your own self . aldous huxley Can we improve our cognitive performance through deliberate training? How about refining our emotional expression, thoughts, and actions? The short answer is yes, albeit with some caveats. The longer answer raises a nuanced debate highlighting the influence that biology and social exposure wield on our lives. This book probes the relative merits and limitations associated with neural changes and the scientific support for training the human brain. The analogy between a workout for the

Chapter 8 Conclusion The Case for Brain Training This book examines contemporary fascination with the notion of training the human brain. We explore the relative merits and shortcomings of behavioral exercises to preserve, enhance, and restore mental function. We base our impressions on reading the scientific literature and experimental findings available at this time. As academics, we concentrate our effort on providing an integration and synthesis of the available data to provide an impartial account. We strive to present a narrative that is accessible to a wide readership of scientists, practitioners, educators, and the general public. Whether or not

Chapter 3 Are You Paying Attention? When you pay attention to boredom, it gets unbelievably interesting. jon kabat-zinn In today’s busy world, few among us are strangers to distraction. The irony of maintaining focus lingered mockingly in writing this chapter about attention. Our workaholic culture thrives on multitasking and we often fall victim to the lure of email notifications, phone calls, and social media alerts. Most of us fail to acknowledge that working on different tasks in parallel more often amounts to distracting ourselves, rather than simultaneously accomplishing numerous responsibilities. Such multitasking actually compromises our attention capacity

Chapter 6 Mental and Neurological Remediation Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social wellbeing, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Some psychopathologies and brain disorders seem difficult to rehabilitate back to health. The distinction between psychiatric and neurological disorders is not always easy to make. Historically, many more physicians used to specialize in both psychiatry and neurology. Today, however, mental health and diseases of the nervous system have largely forged their own separate turfs. In this chapter we outline some of the emerging approaches to easing the symptoms of developmental conditions, including autism
