Description:

The brain is enveloped by a vast network of blood vessels that supply the energy for us to breathe, move, feel, and think. As we age, these vessels are susceptible to changes which may impact our brain and cognition. Learn how to keep your brain healthy throughout the aging process by understanding how blood is supplied to the brain and why that’s important to its function.
