KTBS3 - Suzanne Tinsley, associate director of the Center for Brain Health at LSUHS, says anything that stimulates thinking can be neuro-protective. “So, exercise is number one, try to improve your diet as much as you can, stimulate your brain. You know, work crossword puzzles, do Sudoku. Do all those things that make you think.”
KTBS3 - Suzanne Tinsley, LSUHS Center for Brain Health Associate Director, says exercise increases oxygen levels in the brain. Exercise has been shown to also slow the progression of the brain’s degeneration process. Watch Video
KTBS3 - Dr. Roger Kelley, LSUHS professor and chairman of Neurology, shares, "We now have stronger imaging with PET scan, where we can actually image the plaques of Alzheimer's Disease and image the tangles of Alzheimer's Disease as the patient's just lying there."
The Center for Brain Health at LSUHS has received a $100,000 gift to create the Noel Foundation, Inc. Endowed Professorship Honoring Dr. Robert C. Leitz, III in Parkinson’s Disease Research. It will expand the study of age-related neurodegenerative diseases and fund neurological training equipment for students studying at LSUHS.
