We are encouraged to think of old age as synonymous with a decline in our skills. Yet recent studies show that our decision making improves as we age and that our happiness levels peak in our eighties. So what really happens to our brains as we get older?
This 2nd March, neuroscientist, psychologist and internationally bestselling author Daniel Levitin invites us to dramatically shift our understanding of ageing, demonstrating its many cognitive benefits.
Daniel will draw on cutting-edge research - the subject of his new book The Changing Mind: A Neuroscientist's Guide to Ageing Well - to offer realistic guidelines and practical cognition-enhancing tricks, and show us what we all can learn from those who age joyously.
Daniel will be in conversation with Salon's Helen Bagnall after which you will be able to put your questions to him.
