    Brain Fitness 2: Sight and Sound [#1] This program is designed to help people get the most from their senses as they age. It looks at the two important senses of vision and hearing, how they change throughout life, and what we can do to keep them healthy and fully functional. We know that we begin to experience decline in most cognitive functions in our 30s and 40s. As we grow older, the rate of decline increases, and the cumulative effects become more noticeable. We have increasing difficulty remembering, paying close attention, responding rapidly, performing complex tasks and our coordination and movement and many other cognitive functions that once came easily are now more difficult. But what we notice most is the difficulty hearing in a noisy place or seeing when we look at someone placed in front of a bright light, and we find that our reading slows. These are symptoms of elemental physical changes in the aging brain. The problem is more than just lapses in memory. This program is based on neuro-plasticity - the ability of the brain to change and adapt -- even rewire itself! It studies how we see and how that changes through life. Host: Dr. Michael Merzenich. duration 1:59:11   STEREO

    Happiness Advantage with Shawn Achor, The Positive psychology expert Shawn Achor demonstrates how to use the latest scientific research on happiness to find success in every aspect of our lives. Most people believe that once they land that long-awaited promotion, make more money, get their kids into the right schools, lose a few pounds, or find a meaningful relationship, then they'll be happy. But based on recent discoveries in the fields of positive psychology and neuroscience, Achor shows us that that formula for happiness is wrong. In fact, it's backwards.

    It turns out, happiness actually fuels success, not the other way around.This is what Achor calls The Happiness Advantage. When we become more positive, our brain becomes more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient and productive. The result is an advantage over the entirety of our life - improving success at work, creating better health, better relationships with our loved ones, and creating a happier home.
