Carol Stream, Ill. – September 25, 2013 – No doubt, the brain is a miracle. The many facets of the brain and strategies to optimize brain function are only of two of the topics covered during an upcoming 6-week class, “Working with Your Brain,” led by Linda Sasser, Ph.D.

Held on six consecutive Wednesdays beginning Oct. 16, the course will take place in the learning center at Windsor Park, 124 Windsor Park Drive, Carol Stream. The classes start at 10 a.m. and last for approximately 75 minutes. There is no charge for this interactive series, and the public is invited. Space is limited, so please R.S.V.P. by calling (630)510-5201.

Sasser’s class is hosted by the Windsor Park Center for Lifelong Learning which plans enrichment and growth opportunities for residents and the public under the guidance of three resident-run task forces.

According to Sasser, who served as a professor at Judson University and adjunct professor at Wheaton College, participants will gain the most by attending each class, but it isn’t mandatory.

“The purpose of this course is to educate participants about the brain and its influence on everyday behavior,” explained Sasser. “Depending on the classes taken, participants will also learn about lifestyle factors that impact brain health, the role of emotions in personal growth, relationships, and decision making.”

She said strategies for problem solving and creativity as well as ways to optimize your brain’s function will also be taught.  Sasser explains that although brain function generally deteriorates as we age, brain health can be prolonged and even improved with dietary choices, brain exercises and problem-solving activity.
