Smart Brain Aging
Deborah Cahn-Weiner, Ph.D.
Americans are living longer, and the risk of developing dementia such as Alzheimer's disease increases with age. Age-related cognitive changes occur naturally as well, so strategies to improve and maintain brain health are critically important. The goal of this course is to provide information on research-based recommendations for ways to improve and maintain brain health as we age, including lifestyle factors and exercise.
