Dr Helena Popovic on outwitting dementia

Dr Helena Popovic is one of the world’s leading experts on improving brain function. Her new book offers a new paradigm for enriching our life at every age. 

Helena posits that Dementia need not be a disaster or a dread; instead, it can be a doorway to creating a smarter brain, stronger body and more fulfilling life. 

Filled with groundbreaking scientific insights and laugh-out-loud stories from a father and daughter’s adventure with dementia, Can Adventure Prevent Dementia? reveals that education is more powerful than medication and there are ways we can all grow bolder rather than older. 
Her autobiographical page-turner reads like a neuro-thriller and shows how we can age better than we ever imagined. 
Ageing is inevitable. Mental decline is not. Let Dr Popovic show you the way.  

About the book 

A meticulous doctor’s all-consuming search for the cure to her father’s Alzheimer’s leads to a discovery she did not expect. 
Moment by moment, our brain is changing in response to everything we do, think, feel and experience. This is known as neuroplasticity. We are not passive victims of our genes, our past or our environment. We play an active role in how our brain develops throughout our life, and it’s never too late — or too early — to boost our brain, avert Alzheimer’s and defy dementia.

  • Anyone interested in brain health and neuroscience.

  • Anyone wanting to sharpen their thinking to achieve their goals.

  • Anyone diagnosed with or caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia.
