The Brain vitality index (BVI) with Selena Bartlett 

We use a body mass index (BMI) to measure our body's fitness but why don't we use a brain vitality index (BVI) to measure the health of our brain? Neuroscientist Professor Selena Bartlett examines how we can prevent brain ageing and teach our brain positive lessons. Selena Bartlett is passionate about the brain and helping people rewire their brains to unlock habits learnt over a lifetime that are holding them back from reaching their potential.
