Webinar: Optimizing Brain Fitness & How Technology Plays a Role

Dec. 5, 2018, 9 a.m.



Many of us often forget the importance of having a healthy brain. Unless we start to experience memory loss, concentration problems, or have trouble sleeping, we overlook the symptoms and signs of cognitive decline. For healthy individuals, age-related cognitive decline can begin long before retirement. Over 50% of the population will develop dementia by age 85 and the brain changes of dementia start to develop years before clinical symptoms become evident. How do we reduce the risk of cognitive decline, improve brain health and optimize brain fitness in an aging population?

Research has shown that optimizing sleep, physical activity, diet, and targeting specific cognitive skills with custom-designed software interventions can drastically reduce the risk of later dementia and significantly improve brain health. Synaptitude Brain Health has created a unique, comprehensive, evidence-based brain health and wellness program designed to identify modifiable risks to brain health and reduce these risks through personalized interventions that improve brain health over time. The Synaptitude program combines rigorous brain health assessments with preventative strategies to objectively measure brain health, identify and reduce risk factors for cognitive decline and optimize brain fitness through lifestyle interventions.

In this webinar, Dr. Max Cynader will examine key factors that impact brain health and discuss how technology is being used to reduce risks for cognitive impairment, optimize brain fitness and improve brain health.
