Another recent study finds that higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which are found in fish oil, can help preserve brain function. This means that there may be a way to delay dementia and cognitive aging. A combination of fish oil and supplements several times a week can improve memory and thinking skills.
A professor of molecular and cellular biology at Harvard named Takao Hensch discovered a new way to recreate the elasticity of younger brains using valproic acid. Adults in his research were able to rapidly acquire the skill of perfect pitch. This insight may be able to be applied to help adults quickly learn new languages.
