WHAT HAPPENS TO OUR BRAINS AS WE AGE? WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN NORMAL AGING AND THE VERY EARLY STAGES OF DISEASES SUCH AS ALZHEIMER'S? ARE THERE THINGS WE CAN DO TO OPTIMIZE OUR MENTAL CAPABILITIES?
On July 12 at 10am, neuropsychologist Lauren Half Warren, PhD, a Clinical Assistant Professor at Washington State University, will provide some answers to these questions, as well as discuss ongoing research at WSU that seeks to help older adults with memory problems retain independence through using memory strategies and education, while providing social support.
Appointments will be made for that afternoon for Dr. Warren and WSU graduate students to meet individually with people who are interested in participating in the research program. These scheduled appointments will begin at 1:00pm and take place at:
Kadlec Neurological Resource Center
