Our brains naturally and normally change with age more than we think—‘like a fine wine’ some things get better with age, while other abilities decline. Either way, knowing the difference is key: as example, research shows that our decision-making errors increase with age, while our confidence in our correctness also increases – we are making more errors, we are just surer we aren’t! Other abilities and processing meanwhile gets more acute, skills get honed, and we get better at all kinds of role functions and tasks. Knowing what these are is key to maintaining accuracy, productivity and relevance in the workforce throughout our careers, especially when it comes to interacting with and training next-gen workers, as well as through the succession planning process.
"Women’s Brain Health Initiative was delighted to invite Dr. Brynn Winegard to address the importance of mental stimulation as one of the key topics for maintaining brain health in our Education Series. Brynn successfully engaged with guests and enlightened them through her motivating, evidence-based presentation on The Aging Brain.
I would highly recommend Dr. Winegard if you’re interested in capturing your audience’s attention and inspiring your guests with the latest information on the secrets of brain-science."
