The Effect of Stress On Your Brain
Three of our Stark team members had the opportunity to sit down with Brant Cortright, Ph.D., to learn about how stress directly affects our brain’s health. Brant Cortright, Ph.D., has written two #1 international Amazon bestsellers titled Functional Psychology for Anxiety, Depression, and Cognitive Decline, as well as The Neurogenesis Diet and Lifestyle. He emphasized the importance of increasing the rate of neurogenesis in our brains, which is the process by which new neurons are formed in the brain. We should strive to have higher rates of neurogenesis as it is directly related to improved cognitive function and lowered stress.
