Brant Cortright, Ph.D., is the author of the #1 international Amazon bestseller The Neurogenesis Diet and Lifestyle: Upgrade Your Brain, Upgrade Your Life. Dr. Cortright is a Professor of psychology at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco. He is a licensed clinical psychologist with a private practice in neuroscience-informed depth psychotherapy. He is a consultant on brain and cognitive health and the author of two previous books.
The Neurogenesis Diet and Lifestyle integrates cutting-edge neuroscience research on enhancing cognitive function and extending brain health with a holistic program for increasing your rate of neurogenesis (the rate the brain makes new brain cells.) Research shows that your rate of neurogenesis is the most important biomarker for brain health most people have never heard of.
Low rates of neurogenesis are associated with cognitive deficits, memory problems, anxiety, stress and depression. High rates of neurogenesis are associated with the opposite: enhanced cognitive abilities, rapid learning and problem solving, as well as protection against stress, anxiety and depression.
Most people can increase their rate of neurogenesis five times or more, with dramatic improvements in their quality of life. The evidence also indicates that this approach to brain health is highly neuroprotective against Alzheimer’s and cognitive decline.
What’s the point of living longer if your brain deteriorates?
Recent discoveries about neurogenesis (the growth of new brain cells) show the rate of neurogenesis is the most important biomarker for brain health most people have never heard of.
Low rates of neurogenesis are associated with cognitive decline, memory problems, anxiety, stress and depression. High rates of neurogenesis show the opposite: cognitive enhancement, rapid learning and protection from anxiety, stress and depression.
Most people can increase their rate of neurogenesis five times with dramatic improvements in quality of life. This is the first time this neuroscience research has been gathered in one place to present a practical, holistic approach to diet and lifestyle to increase your rate of neurogenesis and upgrade your brain.
