'Memory and Aging: Science-Backed Ways to Improve Your Memory as You Age'

June 26, 2017 - 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm

Fear of memory loss is probably one of the biggest fears we have as we get older. But not all memory is negatively impacted by aging! Beyond the tricks and tips, Deborah K. Eakin, memory and aging researcher at Mississippi State University, will present practical yet scientifically backed ways to improve your memory as you age. Topics include how to remember names, how to deal with word-finding issues, how to remember lists, and how to distinguish normal from dementia-related memory failures. In addition, the focus will be on a type of cognitive process related to memory that does not fade as we age and how to rely on this process to help memory. All interested adults from the community and campus, particularly those who are 60+ years of age, especially are encouraged to attend.
