Summary
"Contrary to the long-held belief that our brain power inevitably declines as we age, The Mature Mind argues that there are actually positive changes taking place in our minds. Drawing on a wealth of scientific research, as well as in-depth interviews with older women and men, Gene Cohen, a renowned psychiatrist and gerontologist, reveals for the first time how the mind continues to grow and flourish well into the second half of life."--BOOK JACKET
