This practical and informative book by prominent Ottawa neurologist Dr. Antoine Hakim says that you can avoid dementia and the loss of control that accompanies this brain disease by following the author''s seven specific rules to exercise the brain and body. Readers will learn how to build a cognitive reserve to protect their minds from injury such as stroke. By following these rules, it''s even possible to reverse some of the early signs of dementia.
