On this edition of River to River, Ben Kieffer speaks with renowned neuroscientist Dan Levitin about his new book "Successful Aging: A Neuroscientist Explores the Power and Potential of Our Lives." This book offers new insights on getting older and asks the overarching question: why do some people age better than others? It also debunks myths about memory, depression and chronic pain in old age.
Levitin’s previous books include "This is Your Brain on Music," "The World in Six Songs," "The Organized Mind" and "A Field Guide to Lies." Levitin is the founding Dean of arts & humanities at the Minerva Schools at the Keck Graduate Institute in San Francisco, also professor emeritus at McGill University.
