Harvard experts bring you all the information you need for understanding how you can stay mentally sharp as you age by following their practical 6-step plan for cognitive fitness.
We are living longer than ever before. Human life expectancy has grown spectacularly over the past few decades, thanks to advances in public health and medicine. With maturity comes a wealth of experience and knowledge. Yet age also brings an increasing risk for major medical conditions. Brain problems are a particular concern as we grow older. According to the World Health Organization, Alzheimer’s and other brain diseases will affect one out of every five people at some point in life, and these conditions are the main cause of lifelong disability worldwide.
The good news is that declining brain health and cognitive loss are not inevitable.
In this fascinating course, you’ll learn about cognitive reserve — the brain’s ability to find alternate ways of doing something — and how it can help fight the brain changes associated with dementia and other brain diseases.

Cognitive Fitness explores decades of research on cognitive health and discover the six pillars of brain health that can help you sustain good brain function and cognitive fitness (the ability to learn, reason, remember, and adapt your thinking processes) into old age.
