Yes! You can improve your brain function!

Motivational speaker Gary Anaka gestures as he speaks to a crowd of 100 people at the Community Centre on Wednesday morning. Anaka calls himself a “brain health and wellness coach” and promotes ways to improve memory and mental sharpness. Anaka’s presentation was extremely funny but also quite interesting as he punctured many long-held popular-but-mythical notions about the human brain, such as the belief that “the brain is a hard-wored black box,” that we only use 10% of our brains, that nothing can be done about improving our brains, that we can’t grow new brain cells and that the human brain can’t change.
