 The Aging Brain - Memory and cognitive ability

Presenter: Char Glenn MD

As we get older some things are inevitable. For instance kidney function will taper a little. But what about our brains?

Can we do something now that may help us as we age? If we happen to look at the genes we were dealt, should we get discouraged? We'll explore current science in easy terms about the underlying causes of dysfunctions in the aging brain. Then we'll discuss ways we and other people can improve our odds and the concerns people may bring into our clinical practices.

 Professionals who attend this workshop will be able to:

  • Discuss biological factors that contribute to loss of memory and cognitive ability as we age.
  • Discuss a few of the difficulties in current research on aging, memory and cognition.
  • Discuss several ways to maintain good memory and cognition.
