302: Unlocking Cognitive Superpowers As You Age with Steven Kotler

By June 27, 2023No Comments

What do you believe about your brain as you age?

If you’re like most people, you expect that you’ll get a little slower, you’ll become more forgetful, and you’ll have difficulty learning new things as easily… and that’s if you’re lucky. Because about 10% of senior adults in the US will develop dementia, while another 22% will have mild cognitive impairment.

While aging does correlate with certain structural and chemical changes in the brain, we now know that many cognitive abilities can be maintained or even improved later in life.

So while our medical and pharmaceutical industries continue to search for cures for cognitive decline, we can take comfort in the fact that there are interventions that can be done at any age to improve peak performance. By the end of this episode, you’ll know all the latest research and insights to help you maintain and boost your cognitive abilities as you age.

Our guest is Steven Kotler. He is a New York Times bestselling author, an award-winning journalist, and the Executive Director of the Flow Research Collective. He is one of the world’s leading experts on human performance. Steven is also the author of eleven bestsellers (out of fourteen books), including “The Art of Impossible,” “The Future is Faster Than You Think,” “Stealing Fire,” “The Rise of Superman,” “Bold,” and “Abundance.”

  • The anti-aging benefits of flow states and how to get into them on demand
  • How forgiveness unlocks wisdom and empathy
  • How to use dynamic play and novel environment to speed up and enhance learning at any age
