My World Tuesday: Brain Awareness

Photo: courtesy Auckland University Newsletter.


I received from my alumni, Auckland university this email. Our brain is such a complex and fascinating computer. I have some students whose brains have been affected due to accidents at birth, after birth or just been wired differently. Sometimes, I don't even understand myself why I reacted in a way I didn't intend to.

As I journey along life's by way, I reached my half a century, I find that my eyes don't function as well as before. I need reading glasses. I hope my brain will remain as sharp. Perhaps I should do some brain gym exercise or memory techniques.

I better make a point to attend some of the talks. May be I should take more gingko tea.

Dear Ann,
