- Neural Correlates and Modifiers of Cognitive Aging
October 25 2016 at 9:30 AM
71 East Ferry St. Detroit MI, 48202
Naftali Raz, Ph.D. Director, IOG Lifespan Cognitive Neuroscience Program, Professor, Department of Psychology
The brain and cognition change with age, but rates of change differ between individuals as well as across brain regions and cognitive domains. Multiple factors associated with vascular and metabolic risk, inflammation, stress, and accumulation of reactive oxygen species modify the course of aging.The relationship between age-related changes in the brain and cognition is complex and depends on many factors that are difficult to take into account within a single study. Interventions that ameliorate the negative modifiers, such as exercise and an active lifestyle, inspire cautious optimism as they promise mitigating age-related declines. Dr. Raz will survey the progress in understanding brain aging and its impact on cognition with a specific emphasis on longitudinal studies.
The IOG colloquia are opportunities for researchers and aging experts to present their work meant to provide enrichment to graduate students and inform faculty, community members, and partners about new research and developments. The research-focused colloquia take place in the Hoobler Room in the Charles Lang Freer House located at 71 E. Ferry StreetTuesday mornings from 9:30 am-10:30 am and are free and open to students, professionals, and the public.
