Dr. Tommy Wood, MD, PhD, specializes in studying brain trauma in newborns. And his passion is translating that research into lessons we can all use to help us protect our brains as we age.
For instance, we should challenge and stimulate our brains, but how much is “enough”? We should eat a healthy Diet and exercise regularly. But what’s the best Diet to follow? What kind of exercise is best? And what role does sleep, social connections, and genetics play?
Dr. Wood and I explore these topics, and more.
