Research institutions have invested enormous amounts of effort into investigating the mechanisms that promote brain plasticity.

Various types of dietary behavior, lifestyle habits, and dietary compounds increase brain chemicals such as brain-derived neurotrophic factor and promote genetic expression pathways and mitochondria biogenesis.

Understanding these variables can dramatically augment brain rehabilitation and support clinical strategies to optimize brain function.

This course blends a review of the latest scientific articles with clinical strategies to identify and manage patients with cognitive disorders in a spectrum starting with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) in children and going to end-stage neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Lewy body dementia.
