2nd March 2021 | Live Stream

We are encouraged to think of old age as synonymous with a decline in our skills. Yet recent studies show that our decision making improves as we age and that our happiness levels peak in our eighties. So what really happens to our brains as we get older?

This 2nd March, neuroscientist, psychologist and internationally bestselling author Daniel Levitin invites us to dramatically shift our understanding of ageing, demonstrating its many cognitive benefits.

Daniel will draw on cutting-edge research - the subject of his new book The Changing Mind: A Neuroscientist's Guide to Ageing Well - to offer realistic guidelines and practical cognition-enhancing tricks, and show us what we all can learn from those who age joyously.

This Salon is part of our drive to get us together with the big ideas we need. Tickets are £10 or why not support our bookselling and buy our book inclusive ticket, and we'll send you Daniel’s book, The Changing Mind: A Neuroscientist's Guide to Ageing, after the Salon. Alternatively, become a member and get your big ideas curated by us at Salon London for a whole year.
