It is well-known that human brain develops significantly in early infancy, but it could remain malleable throughout lifespan development, and lifestyle factors – including nutrition and fitness – can significantly enhance brain function. Dr. Cohen explains how memory systems specifically remain plastic and support plasticity through lifespan development, therefore making them a promising target of nutritional enhancement.
