Feeling brain-drained by everything going on this year? Prepare to energize with brain-and-exercise expert Wendy Suzuki! At the next Secret Science Club, Dr. Suzuki dives into the neuroscience and asks:

--What changes take place in the brain during & after exercise?
--How does exercise support deep and focused learning?
--What are the best physical exercises for your brain? Can you bulk up and sculpt your hippocampus?
--What’s the connection between exercise and memory?
--Will there ever be personalized prescriptions for exercise to boost and protect brain health?

--Mix your own “Neuroblaster” cocktail… (recipe below!)
-- Shimmy to brain-pumping grooves
--Bring your questions for the live Q&A
--Take a peek at the Dana Foundation's digital magazine, Cerebrum, for news, podcasts, and analysis on emerging ideas in brain science
--Learn how you can participate in Brain Awareness Week, the global campaign to foster enthusiasm and support for brain science

Wendy Suzuki is a neuroscientist and professor of neural science and psychology at the Center for Neural Science at New York University. Her major research interest is brain plasticity, the ability of the brain to physically change in response to the environment. She is best known for her extensive work studying areas in the brain critical for our ability to form and retain new long-term memories. More recently, her research has focused on understanding how aerobic exercise can be used to improve learning, memory, and higher cognitive abilities in humans. She is the author of the book Healthy Brain, Happy Life, which was turned into a PBS special.

This mind-blowing edition of Secret Science Club - featuring Wendy Suzuki - is supported by the Dana Foundation. The Dana Foundation is dedicated to advancing understanding about the brain in health and disease through research grants and public outreach.

This is a FREE event.
