“If you could see the future, what would you have for dinner?”

Dr. Lisa Mosconi, PhD, is the Associate Director of the Alzheimer’s Prevention Clinic at Weill Cornell Medical College/NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. In 2018, Lisa published her book Brain Food: the Surprising Science of Eating for Cognitive Power.

How do our diets affect our brain power? And what’s the relationship between lifestyle and genetics? In the intersection between neuroscience and nutrition, Lisa focuses on how genetics, lifestyle and – more specifically – diets literally shape the brain.

As a world-renowned clinical neuroscientist and neuro-nutritionist with over 15 years of experience in the early detection and risk assessment of Alzheimer’s, Dr. Mosconi brings a unique and authoritative perspective to this nascent field. By integrating rigorous scientific knowledge of neuroscience, neurology, biology, genetics, brain imaging, nutrition and preventive medicine, “Brain Food” sets out to change the way we eat as an essential aspect of healthcare for our well-being.
