Brain Health

As research explores what role different lifestyle factors play in preventing Alzheimer’s disease, Being Patient covers the latest studies on brain health. We exam the science behind diet and exercise and report on the latest studies on preventing cognitive decline. We delve into research that focuses on what happens inside our brains when we  learn a new language or  play a new instrument. Because plaques associated with Alzheimer’s disease can appear in the brain as many as two decades before a person experiences the first symptom, science points towards positive lifestyle changes to prevent or delay the onset of Alzheimer’s.




What is it like to live with Alzheimer’s disease? The Being Patient Podcast gives a rare account of what it’s like to live with Alzheimer’s from the patient’s perspective. The first of an ongoing series, we feature Brian Kursonis. Diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s in his fifties, Brian explains why it took a year to get a diagnosis and how he’s fighting a declining memory.
