Today we talk with clinical neuropsychologist John Randolph about his latest book The Brain Health Book: Using the power of neuroscience to improve your life, and some of his own clinical experiences in helping people to better brain health.
The Brain Health Book:
Using the Power of Neuroscience to Improve Your Life
Easy-to-understand science-based strategies to maximize your brain’s potential.
Concerns about memory and other thinking skills are common, particularly in middle age and beyond. Due to worries about declining brain health, some seek out dubious products or supplements purportedly designed to improve memory and other cognitive abilities. Fortunately, scientific research has uncovered a clear- cut set of evidence- based activities and lifestyle choices that are inexpensive or free and known to promote brain and cognitive functioning.
John Randolph translates this science in an engaging and accessible way, including the brain- boosting effects of exercise, social activity, mental stimulation, task management strategies, nutrition, and positive self-care. Interwoven with lessons from neuroscience, positive psychology, social and clinical psychology, and habit formation research are powerful self- coaching exercises designed to help the reader incorporate lifestyle changes that promote brain health.

Really enjoyed the conversation with John Randolph. As a trainer of psychotherapy I find it useful to have some good intervention like John’s CAP model. His attention on brain health as a co-occurrence to mental health issues was informative. Good point about time and rythyms with young people and performance. I recently saw on American ABC new that many universties in the USA are adjusting their class time structure to enhance students learning and performance. So the idea was good to hear John back this up by research.As an educator building cognitive reserve with curosity is always a good strategy.
Thank you guys
