What is Brain Health?

What do we mean when we say “brain health?”

“Brain health refers to how well a person’s brain functions across several areas. Aspects of brain health include:

  • Cognitive health — how well you think, learn, and remember
  • Motor function — how well you make and control movements, including balance
  • Emotional function — how well you interpret and respond to emotions (both pleasant and unpleasant)
  • Tactile function — how well you feel and respond to sensations of touch — including pressure, pain, and temperature.”

A healthy lifestyle helps with all aspects of brain health. If you have questions, it is important to consult with your doctor on what changes you can make to support your brain health.
