Date & Time
6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Dr. Brown will discuss treatments for Age-Associated Memory Impairment and Mild Cognitive-Impairment, including Cilostazol, an inexpensive, well-tolerated medication for brain health which has not yet come to the attention of most physicians and consumers in the US, used by doctors in Japan and Taiwan to reduce the rate of dementia. Cognitive enhancers, particularly Nootropics, are marketed on the internet as “brain boosters.” Dr. Brown will focus on the Nootropics for which there is sufficient evidence and clinical observation to warrant using them to maintain and improve brain function throughout the life cycle.
Dr. Brown will also discuss herbs, nutrients, and mind-body techniques that enhance brain function for increased work productivity and performance. Many of the treatment options Dr. Brown presents are also beneficial for improving cognition and memory following brain injury due to stroke, trauma, or other causes.
