The brain takes up nearly a quarter of the body’s energy supply, but is only about 2% of its mass. So why don’t we look after it? We are joined in the tortoise shack by Psychologist, award winning communicator and brain health advocate, Sabina Brennan.
We discuss how we should treat people with brain health issues, such as Alzheimer’s, versus how we currently do. She gives us an insight into how our brains grow, cope with trauma and adapt. Sabina also gives us her top tips for looking after your brain and how to build what she calls a cognitive reserve that can stave off brain disease.
