Brains, coffee, diet

January 4, 2016

We’re only beginning to understand how the different parts of the brain interact. We each differ in that. But we can’t differ too much. Hava Siegelmann at the University of Massachusetts is tackling that problem by analyzing the fMRIs from thousands of people.

Stanford neuroscientist Russell Poldrack was looking only at fMRIs only of himself, over time, when he realized that his brain organized itself differently on coffee than off coffee. Which, of course, any grad student could have told him. But he was smart enough to publish that with neurological proof.

The brain ages less rapidly on the Mediterranean diet.
