Dr. Majid Fotuhi, MD, PhD
Medical Director, NeuroGrow Brain Fitness Center
Affiliate Staff, Johns Hopkins Medicine
Dr. Fotuhi received his medical degree (cum laude) from Harvard Medical School in Boston and his PhD doctorate in neurosciences from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. He completed his neurology residency and fellowship training at Johns Hopkins Hospital. 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 vitamins and natural supplements in maintaining cognitive function and brain health.
His recent research on the effects of aging on the brain has shown that baby-boomers can indeed increase the size of their hippocampus, the part of brain that is critical for short term memory. He has published his findings in prestigious journals such as Journal of Neuroscience, The Lancet, Nature, Neurology, Neuron, and Proceedings of National Academy of Science. His articles have been cited by thousands of scientists around the world. Based on his research at Johns Hopkins and Harvard, he has developed a 3-month “Brain Fitness Program” to help middle age people sharpen their memory quickly and keep their brain young for years to come.
Dr. Fotuhi has dedicated much of his time to educating the public about issues related to memory and aging. He has been the visiting professor and keynote speaker for conferences in China, Japan, Canada, Israel and other countries around the world. His first book, The Memory Cure: How to Protect Your Brain Against Memory Loss and Alzheimer’s Disease, has sold more than 100,000 copies. His second book, The New York Times Puzzles to Keep Your Brain Young: The 6-Step Age-Defying Program, is the focus of his popular PBS program called Fight Alzheimer’s Early. He has been interviewed and featured in Boston Globe, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, ABC News, CNN, Discovery Channel, Forbes, USA Today, and The Dr. Oz Show. Dr. Fotuhi’s third book, Boost Your Brain, will be released on Sept 10th, 2013.
Dr. Fotuhi has been a popular lecturer at both Johns Hopkins and Harvard Medical School for 25 years. He is the recipient of the American Academy of Neurology Teaching Award and numerous other awards for his contributions to the field of brain science and Alzheimer’s research.
