Brain Waves: Cognitive Reserves & Memory Loss

Why do some people remain so sharp as they age, while others are less resilient to the effects of memory loss and dementia? Why are some still able to function normally even when their brain shows that there is damage or pathology that could lead to cognitive decline? It might come down to something called cognitive reserve, and that’s what we’ll be exploring on this episode of Brain Waves, with neurogeneticist Dr Azlina Ahmad Annuar.
