When We Age

View descriptionShare

How do our brains change as we get older? Why are we more likely to develop Alzheimer’s or experience a stroke late in life? And what can you do to help protect your neural health?

In this episode of How We’re Wired, join evolutionary anthropologist Dr Anna Machin as she unpicks the neuroscience behind the mature brain, from the neural changes that makes most of us more forgetful, to strides in repairing brain tissue after stroke.

With special thanks to Sue, Alexandra Touroutoglou, and Jocelyne Bloch.
