This week, we’re joined by neuroscientist Dr. Tommy Wood who shares that there it’s possible for us to stave off cognitive decline with something fairly simple: exercise. Dr. Wood is not only a neuroscientist – he has also coached and competed in multiple sports including rowing, CrossFit, powerlifting, and ultra-endurance racing – and uses both his academic and real-life experience to share more about the role of exercise in cognitive function and brain health. Expect to get more information on which activities are the most effective and why, the role stress plays in our brain health, and how recovery is essential to recovery physically and mentally.
