Dr. Kenneth Kosik of the Santa Barbara nonprofit Center for Cognitive Fitness & Innovative Therapies recently presented research at the Cognitive Aging Summit 2010 in Washington, D.C.

The summit highlighted recent research regarding the most cutting-edge advances in the understanding of age-related brain changes and innovative research approaches that will prevent or delay cognitive decline, including behavioral and pharmacological interventions.

Dr. Kosik is the founder of the Center for Cognitive Fitness & Innovative Therapies, co-director of UCSB’s Neuroscience Research Institute and the author of The Alzheimer’s Solution: How Today’s Care Is Failing Millions and How We Can Do Better.

CFIT’s mission is to improve cognitive health by raising awareness about the importance of lifestyle factors such as physical exercise, cognitive challenges, nutrition, stress reduction, blood pressure, glucose levels and other factors that influence cognition and memory in the aging process. CFIT is dedicated to helping the Santa Barbara community age successfully through individualized brain-wellness programs.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
