Psychology Talks: Building a Better Brain
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
350 West Georgia
Do you worry about memory loss? Or not being able to “keep up” with the younger generation? Changes in our thinking skills are thought of as a natural part of aging. However, research is now demonstrating that many of our daily habits have a powerful influence on our brain’s health, and therefore on our ability to stay cognitively sharp. This presentation will describe our current understanding of the factors that may reduce the likelihood of cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease. Participants can expect to come away with an appreciation of the specific changes they can make to take advantage of these findings.
