Okay. It's not really controversial, but I've seen in the last several years, I've seen a lot of irrational Behavior, not just in my own community. D. But from a society perspective and I see obviously a lot of poor nutrition under exercise. People are staying at home or blah, blah, blah. Do you think that there's a lot more people with suboptimal, brain health and Society compared to maybe in the last 30 years, due to poor nutrition and things like that? Because there's a lot of impulsivity and reaction in a, this idea of, like, cancel culture and not thinking through critically. I know it's controversial and we have no evidence to really point to this. But do you think that We're starting to see, like, accelerated, brain, aging even amongst young people
100%. I was actually trying to knows. I've been researching some of the biggest problems in society. And then also, I was looking at the data on death, rates of 2019. And a lot of them are attributable to either cut, you know, heart disease and brain diseases, which whether it's a stroke and, or whether it's Alzheimer's disease, But yeah, we are we are doing behaviors. Okay. I don't I wouldn't go out there and say, we're staying home or being impulsive and this is because of brain health, but really, if we if we look at the brain and look at what a healthy performing, brain and Tails, it is being able to sit and make sound decisions and being able to be rational and impulsivity is being you can practice, you know impulse control which is a cognitive state. So yes, I could definitely say that things that we're Going to accelerate the brain aging process is interfering with modern-day Society. Yes, if I look, if I keep reverse engineering and thinking why I honestly think it comes down to misinformation and lack of Education. Yeah, so this is why I am so grateful for you. And what you do, you put out education, but people have to engage in that it you have to want to learn about what the brain is. What it does and how to take care of it.
So, important with regards to impulse control is that the prefrontal cortex? That's mediating that. Yeah, okay. And then if we think about critical thinking, I know there's a lot of probably where's brain regions involved, but is that also a prefrontal cortex process?
Yeah. But then there's also different area so the prefrontal cortex, you know, sends information to different areas of the brain and the amygdala is part of it. And then we've got different areas like that are responsible for emotional control and I always tell people at any given moment, if you are not eating well, sleeping, well and exercising you're going, your brain is going to fatigue faster and therefore you won't have the brain energy to be rational to think properly. That's what this is all about. You have to have the brain energy to do these things. That makes a lot
