Camarillo clinical psychologist Priscilla L. Partridge de Garcia, using research that shows the brain can be improved and enhanced as we age, will present “Stress Related Aging of the Brain, Alzheimer’s, Dementia and Memory Loss” on Thursday at the Pierpont Racquet Club in Ventura.
“In the last five to 10 years, the body and brain have become a popular topic,” said Partridge de Garcia, who specializes in treating post-traumatic stress disorder. “In 1996, there was a breakthrough in research showing that right up to the last moment before death we are creating brain cells, negating the belief for the last 30 years that each year as we age, our cells died, never to be re-created.”
Presented by Spa by Diane Loring Inc. as part of an ongoing speaker series, the free presentation is for people of all ages who want to learn how to maintain a healthy brain as well as how to recover brain cells that were lost because of poor nutrition and lack of exercise.
