At age 95, the poet Stanley Kunitz was named U.S. poet laureate and was still writing new poems and reading to live audiences-an inspiring example of the brain's vitality in the final years of life. This program presents recent discoveries in neuroscience that tell us how the brain ages, and how that aging process and intact mental functions aren't mutually exclusive. The film demonstrates that older brains continue producing new neurons and possess unique characteristics that form the basis for wisdom. Alzheimer's disease is also an important topic.
