Learn about Brain Aging and Health - Our brain changes throughout our lifetime. It grows rapidly during childhood and early adulthood. Then it prunes and refines connections for the rest of our life. Health and lifestyle impact how our brain ages and contribute to changes in thinking and memory. This means we can do things every day to promote the good health and function of our amazing brain.
