SMART as acronym to reduce Alzheimer’s risk

Professor Shimamura recorded talk titled “Human Memory, Aging and the Brain or Where Did I Put Those Keys?” describes the importance of focus and interactive participation as a way to better remember things. It helps to actively re-tell what you just heard in order to remember better. Actively telling people what you’ve learn (like what I am doing now). It requires integrating thoughts and spitting it out again.

Learn new things. You can learn almost anything you like with videos on YouTube (even lectures on quantum physics if you like).
