Your Brain Keeps Changing

Harnessing brain plasticity to prevent cognitive decline

Alvaro Pascual-Leone, MD, PhD

Director, Berenson-Allen Center for Noninvasive Brain Stimulation

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

Groundbreaking research at The Center for Brain Health (CBH) at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center is transforming the way we grow older by recognizing the centrality of a healthy brain in the aging process. The focus of the Center is the development of technologies and interventions aimed at the earliest detection of brain disorders; the prevention of neurocognitive decline and the preservation of brain fitness across the age-span; and the repair and rehabilitation of impaired brain function to forestall chronic deterioration and its effect on general health. By accomplishing these goals, CBH will extend the overall health, societal productivity, and quality of life for elders.

John -

What do you think about the APA dropping the Asperger diagnosis from the DSM (& considering it simply Autism)? Curious about your thoughts.

Thanks,
