Dr Wendy Suzuki is a Professor of Neural Science and Psychology in the Center for Neural Science at New York University.Her major research interest continues to be brain plasticity. She is best known for her extensive work studying areas in the brain critical for our ability to form and retain new long-term memories. More recently her work has focused on understanding how aerobic exercise can be used to improve learning, memory and higher cognitive abilities in humans. Wendy is the author of bestselling book Healthy Brain, Happy Life and has delivered several TEDx talks (links below). We discuss how exercise affects the brain; how Wendy got into exercise and ran a ground-breaking experiment in her classroom; the effects of exercise on our hormones and physiology and what the best type of exercise is for overall energy and mood. Wendy brings so much energy to our conversation, I know you’re going to enjoy this.
