Gerald  Hüther - Escaping from the Dementia Trap!


Dementia is not fate: pioneering theories on this highly topical subject

Standard dementia research presupposes that dementia is caused by age-related deposits and degradation processes in the brain. Gerald Hüther, a leading brain researcher, clearly explains that this notion, widespread in the last century, is not only incorrect, but has also obscured the phenomenon actually responsible for the development of dementia: suppression of the regeneration and compensatory capacities of the brain, which are normally present well into old age. Yet we almost unavoidably lose this neuroplastic potential in a world where we increasingly lose the joy of personal discoveries and of sharing conceptions and plans of how we grow older.

• Effective prevention strategies from brain research and psychosomatics

"Hüther's Escaping from the Dementia Trap! makes it clear that the old ways of thinking about dementia must be left behind"
