Rave Reviews About Majid Fotuhi
Your presentation taught us, with your lighthearted, fun, and interactive approach, how we can harness the gains from current advances in medical research and nutrition science to keep our brains healthy well into old age. It's clear from the 'survey monkey' comments that you made a big impact on our audience. And I don't think anybody who attended will ever eat another donut without remembering what you said about that!

Are your feeling overwhelmed by the demands of your job and your life? Do you feel like your memory and cognitive skills are failing you? In this engaging and stimulating presentation, Dr. Fotuhi outlines how you can make your brain sharper and younger through a specific set of interventions. People often fear the possibility of Alzheimer's disease when they forget names or conversations; they don't know the latest scientific discoveries showing that simpler factors such as poor sleep, high stress, and a junk-food diet literally destroy the memory parts of the brain and make them prone to developing dementia in the future. Based on his 25-years of research and teaching at Hopkins and Harvard, Dr. Fotuhi breaks the myths that cognitive deterioration is inevitable. He explains, in simple and fun terms, how brain shrinkage with aging can be slowed or reversed in three months. His presentations include before-and-after brain photos of patients who have completed his program and prove that people can indeed grow their brain stronger and see specific results in their home and work environment within weeks. Overall, Dr. Fotuhi empowers his audiences to take simple actions toward enhancing their cognitive capacity and peak their brain performance in order to have more success in their personal and professional lives.

Biography

Dr. Fotuhi received his MD degree (cum laude) from Harvard Medical School, as a member of the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology (HST) and his doctoral PhD degree in Neuroscience from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He is currently the founder and chief medical officer of NeurExpand Brain Center.  He is an affiliate staff at Johns Hopkins Medicine and lectures on topics related to memory, brain health, and concussion to medical students at Harvard Medical School and to general public. He has been an active member of the American Academy of Neurology, American Medical Association, International Brain Research Organization, and Society for Neuroscience.

Dr. Fotuhi’s initial clinical research at Johns Hopkins focused on basic brain neurochemistry and on finding effective ways to prevent dementia. More specifically, he worked on longitudinal studies to determine the beneficial role of a combination of vitamins and natural supplements along with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) in maintaining cognitive function and brain health. His current research focuses on designing multi-disciplinary treatment programs for patients with memory loss and/or post-concussive syndrome. He has published his research findings in Brain Research, Journal of Neuroscience, the Lancet, Nature, Neurology, Neuron, and Proceedings of National Academy of Science.

Dr. Fotuhi has dedicated much of his time to educating the public about memory, aging, and concussion. In his book, The Memory Cure: How to Protect Your Brain Against Memory Loss and Alzheimer''s Disease, he provides clear and concise information about how to prevent dementia. His second book, entitled The New York Times Puzzles to Keep Your Brain Young: The 6 Step Age Defying Program, was released in January 2008. His most recent book, Boost Your Brain, teaches people how they can grow the size of their hippocampus. He has had two PBS programs, entitled “Conquering Memory Loss” and “Fight Alzheimer’s Early.” He has been interviewed by more than 50 media outlets including ABC News, CTV, CBS, TODAY show, Montel show, Fox News, Dr. Oz show, Discovery Channel, The Boston Globe, USA Today, Health magazine, Ladies’ Home Journal, Forbes, BusinessWeek,The Chicago Tribune,The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The Montreal Gazette, and The Times (London).

Dr. Fotuhi has taken a leadership role in medical education as well. He has received numerous awards for his innovative and dynamic teaching style. He is one of the most popular instructors at Harvard Medical School, where he designed and helped to build two 50 feet tall brain models for his students in neuroanatomy classes. He won the distinguished teaching award from the American Academy of Neurology in 2001. He has presented academic lectures as the honorary visiting professor in Canada, Egypt, China, Israel, and Japan; he also had the honor of presenting a lecture at a United Nations meeting in New York in September 2010 and at the legislative briefings for the house and senate in Maryland in February 2015.
