Top Ten Tuesday: Books About Brain Health

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. 10 is just a suggestion to aim for if you can hit it. You can do a list of 3 or 5 or 20, whatever you decide. And you can put a spin on the topic if you need to. Each week there is a new list to create. This week the topic is a freebie so I chose:

Books About Brain Health

For those of you who don't know me, I have a background in psychology and I'm fascinated with cognitive neuroscience and neuroplasticity (the brain's ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throughout life).

Having worked with seniors with Alzheimer's and the prominent spread of this illness and others at younger and younger ages makes me keenly interested in taking care on my noggin. I have all of these books on my bookshelf. Some I've read and others I've yet to read. So here goes:

The Aging Brain by Timothy R. Jennings
This one is on my top list to read in 2019

Healthy Brain, Happy Life by Wendy Suzucki
Another one I'm itching to read

The Brain That Changes Itself by Norman Doidge
I've read snippets of this one and I've met Dr. Doidge. He is amazing!

The Brain's Way of Healing by Norman Doidge
Makes one realize how marvelous our brains really are.

The Organized Mind by Daniel J. Levitin
Perfect for this generation

Grain Brain by David Perlmutter
The right nutrition is key

My Stroke of Insight by Jill Bolte Taylor
Fascinating memoir of a woman who recovered from a stroke

Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman
Another book about the psychology of thinking

Rewire Your Brain by John B. Arden
I love books that focus on change being possible

Switch on Your Brain by Dr. Caroline Leaf
This one was one of my best reads in 2013

Have you read any of these books?

  1. These would be fascinating reads. The brain is an amazing thing. With Alzheimer’s in my family it’s always interesting to learn more about how the brain works.

    1. I agree. And making reasonable lifestyle changes can make all the difference.

  2. I should probably tackle a few of these while I still can. ;)

  3. Wow! Interesting topic choice this week! I think I might have to check out a few of these books.

    1. Thanks, Michelle. I've always been interested in learning so I always have non-fiction books on hand.

  4. Fascinating subject for sure- I especially like the look of The aging Brain and Grain Brain for the nutrition angle which I'd like to know more about.

    1. From everything I've read, nutrition has a lot to do with optimal health, including brain health.

  5. Interesting list. My granddad would have loved exploring these books I think (he was a doctor/inventor)
