Ever since it became possible to view the human brain as it lights up with activity, researchers have had to change longheld assumptions about an organ that has been called “the three-pound universe.”
With the field of neuroscience exploding with new findings by the day, Super Brain With Dr. Rudy Tanzi, airing Sunday, March 3 at 2:00 p.m. and Tuesday, March 5 at 9:00 p.m. on KUED, explores new discoveries that maximize the potential of the human brain in practical and actionable ways. Introduced by Tanzi's co-author, Dr. Deepak Chopra, Harvard Medical School Professor Rudy Tanzi takes advantage of cutting-edge research to show the way to maximize the brain’s potential.
Tanzi crosses the next horizon in brain functioning where every person can reach a higher level of fulfillment and achievement by harnessing the brain’s hidden potential for change, creativity and intelligence. Super Brain With Dr. Rudy Tanzi isn’t an exaggeration or a speculation by futurists. When Tanzi explains and demonstrates new techniques for keeping the brain youthful and retaining mental acuity as we age, the program dispels many long-held myths, including “aging in the brain is irreversible” and “the brain’s hard wiring cannot be changed.”
Tanzi is the Joseph P. and Rose F. Kennedy Professor of Neurology at Harvard University and Director of the Genetics and Aging Research Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital. He has been researching neurological diseases since 1980 and was conferred two of the highest honors given to researchers in his field.
