Learning happens everywhere
For many of us, fall means back to school. And whether you’re a student, an educator or a parent, it’s great to see learners headed back to the classroom again — either remotely or in person.
But of course, learning happens everywhere. In this brain-focused edition of PA Health, we explore how it begins in the womb, continues through life and may be the key to preserving memory and cognition as we age.
Throughout this issue, you’ll find tips on good nutrition for your gray matter and mind-stimulating activities — all balanced by meditation to help deal with stress.
Finally, you’ll meet a retired postal worker who had brain surgery in the morning, was home the same evening and is back on the golf course today with very little scarring. Few things make me happier than a story like this one.
So settle in and learn a little more about your own astounding brain as it leads you through life. And have a safe and happy autumn.
